 Abstract:  The collection consists of a pamphlet submitted by Rabbi Moses Hyamson (1862-1949) to the League of Nations on the issue of the world calendar reform, as well as a journal from a testimonial dinner given at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on the occasion of Hyamson's 75th birthday. A long-time dayan (judge) for the London Beth Din and rabbi in New York, Rabbi Hyamson spoke out against the calendar reform which would have resulted in the Jewish Sabbath no longer being on the seventh day of each week.
