THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS - AREN’T WE ALL BACK TO SCHOOL?
For those who started their fiscal year in January, how about now settling down and celebrating (hopefully) the success of the past year! This postcard shows a group of Jews c. 1917 dressed up in their smart clothes and socializing (perhaps discussing plans to support their favorite museum that start with a Y and ends in an eshiva University Museum [hint hint])?
