THEREFORE , Be It Resolved that the Executive Board of
the Jewish Book Council of America, of which Samuel D. Ger­
shovitz was a valuable member, at its meeting held on November
15, 1960, expresses its sense of irreparable loss and conveys its
profound sympathy to his family;
RESOLVED that the Jewish Book Council of America will
long cherish his tender memory as an inspiration and as a
challenge to pursue with greater vigor the lofty goals he espoused
during his lifetime.
We are appreciative of the active support and cooperative
efforts of the officers and members of the executive board of the
Council, particularly of our distinguished president, Dr. A. Alan
Steinbach, an inspiring leader and a tower of strength.
We are pleased to express our heartfelt gratitude to the scores
of contributors to and the editors of the
Jewish Book Annual
In Jewish Bookland,
without whose generosity these publi­
cations could not appear; to the judges of the annual literary
awards; and to the members of various committees that function
throughout the year.
Credit is due to the Bureau of Public Information of the
National Jewish Welfare Board, particularly to Bernard Postal
and George Perry for their unstinted cooperation.
The National Jewish Welfare Board, its president, Solomon
Litt, executive vice-president, Sanford Solender, and associate
executive, Herbert Millman, have made it possible for the Coun­
cil to function effectively and to serve the American Jewish
community as well as many Jewish organizations abroad. For this
encouragement and support, we are most grateful.
