Then he entered the succah. Aaron Goldston, 97, was present for the annual membership meeting of Hadas-sah, which opened in the succah this week. The succah is a small booth built during the "Fes-t i v a 1 of Tabernacles," or "Succot." Those who adhere to traditional Judaism dwell in the succah as a remembrance of the booths their ancestors lived in from the time of the Exodus until they came to Palestine. Hadassah observed Succot by opening their meeting in the Goldston succah. This is a Women's Zionist Organization of America. It is mainly a health, research and teaching organization whose largest project revolves around the establishment of hospitals and clinics in Israel. They also perform valuable services in this country. Their annual membership meeting was held in the home of Mrs. Harold Goldston on Gilmer Avenue. Mr. Goldston built his own succah 13 years ago and is still using the same frame. The booth consists of a 12-foot square wooden frame covered with white cloth. From the ceiling of Ligus-trum leaves hang bananas, apples, and pears. Mr. Goldston spends most of his time every day in the succah, taking his meals there, praying, and reading from the Bible. Here he holds an Esrog, a citrus fruit similar to a lemon, and a combination of palm trees, thick tree boughs, and willow. Mr. Goldston gave a short speech to the Hadassah members before refreshments were served. He ended by giving the members an ancient blessing in Hebrew. A native of Russia, Mr. Goldston became a citizen of this country 70 years ago. He has lived in Montgomery with his son, Harold Goldston, and Mrs. Goldston for 14 years. Will Honor Parents
