Mr. Abraham Goldberg, one of the
leaders of the Zionist movement in
America and one of the most promi
nent figures in Jewish journalism, a
member of the Administrative (Com
mittee of the Zionist Organization of
America and of the Greater Actions
Committee of the World Zionist Or
ganization, is one of the most popular
figures in American Jewish life. Gift
ed with an extraordinary facile pen,
brilliant orator he has made a distinct
place for himself in Zionist and Jew
ish life in this country.
M r. Goldberg came to this country
about twenty-five years ago. In the*
little Russian town in which he passed
his early years he had already won for
himself a double reputation as a schol
ar and as a Zionist orator. In America,
Mr. Goldberg threw himself, from the
first days of his arrival into the Zion
ist movement, showing the mature
gifts of tongue and pen which have
won him prominence in the Zionist
movement. He studied law at New
When the Zionist movement in this
country was an obscure and derided
phenomenon, the possession of a few
dreamers, Mr. Goldberg was one of
its staunchest supporters. Today, as
a member of its Administrative Com
mittee and as one of the outstand
ing personalities, Mr. Goldberg has
achieved marked distinction in the
Jewish life of this country. He
has returned just a short time ago
from Palestine where he was an eye
witness to the recent Arab atrocities.
His reports on the present situation
in Palestine and in the Zionist work
have aroused wide-spread discussion.
Mr. Abram Goldberg will speak in
Atlanta at the Jewish Woman’s Club,
December 1st, under the auspices of
the Zionist District of Atlanta—Rabbi
Epstein and Rabbi Geffin will intro
duce him to the people of Atlanta.
The men in charge of all arrange
ments are Dave Meyer, Louis Isaac
son, Max M. Cuba, J. Dorfan, Joe
Goldstein, and Meyer Rich.

thousands of people who had no previous ideas
of old-fashioned newspapers. A metropolitan

These are important people, they make
good salaries and spend those salaries, for they
arc not the close-fisted type. Also, there were
of course many native horn Atlantans who held
similar ideas of progressiveness, and they are
also a part of the Georgian-Anieriean city.
