the Jewish Book Council. We honor him now as he has, for the
past four years, honored us.”
Mrs. Frank Cohen then presented a citation to Dr. Nadich
which reads as follows:
The Jewish Book Council
of the
National Jewish Welfare Board
Presents this Citation
to
Rabbi Judah Nadich
in appreciation of his faithful and loyal service as president
of the Council from 1968 to 1972. His devotion to our cause
has been an inspiration and encouragement to his colleagues.
Doctor of Hebrew literature, distinguished rabbi, author,
scholar, and communal leader, Rabbi Judah Nadich has made
enduring contributions to literature and to the American
Jewish community.
The members of the Jewish Book Council of the National
Jewish Welfare Board, at the Annual Meeting on May 21,
1972, offer him this token of their high esteem and gratitude.

SAMUEL M. BLUMENFIELD
Dr. Samuel M. Blumenfield departed this earth on March 1,
1972.
Dr. Blumenfield was vice-president of the Jewish Book Council,
a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Jewish Book
Annual, a contributor to Jewish Bookland, and a loyal worker in
other phases of the Council’s program. His sage advice and gui­
dance were of inestimable value to us who were privileged to be
associated with him. He was president of the College of Jewish
Studies in Chicago and director of the department of education
and culture of the Jewish Agency for Israel where he made notable
and abiding contributions to Jewish education and to Zionism.
