About this Item

Original Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 4 pages ; 22cm. In English and Hebrew. Program from Eliezer Ben-Yehuda’s Farewell Banquet in 1919. Many of the most notable Jews in New York assembled to say goodbye to the Ben-Yehuda. The "Dinner Committee, " printed on the back cover, includes about 100 people, almost all are notable Rabbis, writers, artists, and business people including Celia Adler, Mordecai Kaplan, Judge Julian Mack, Henrietta Szold, Yehoash, Nathan Straus, and Israel Friedlander. It’s very likely that this was the last time most of these American Jews got to see Ben Yehuda. The Menu, printed on the inside page was: Dubonet, Fruit Cocktail, Consomme a la Bar Kochba, Celery, Olives from the Mount of Olives, Salmon, Tartar Sauce, Potatoes, Roast Chicken - - Jelly, Salad Petach Tikvah, Soufflee a la Hemda, Coffee, Bonbon Cakes, Reichsquallen, Wine. "/ "Danziger, Caterer. " Eliezer Ben-Yehuda was the most influential Hebraist of his time.
