Liz Holtzman. In the 80’s or 90’s she had a complete makeover, different hairstyle etc., she rebranded her image before running for higher office (& lost) but in the 70’s that’s how she looked.

Yes, Liz Holtzman. No, she was not on the board. She was a sitting congresswoman and wanted to help Jewish schools and she met with the Bais Rivka board. Huge mystery….

Rishe, I looked at the picture and before I looked down at the comments I thought it looks like Elizabeth Holtzman.. Insee that others agree with me also.

In the late ’70s, when the Women’s Lib movement was in full force, I had a job on Capitol Hill, and in my office we used to joke that if you called her office, the receptionist would say, “Congressperson Holtzperson’s office. May I help you?”
(I don’t think it was true; ‘just a fun joke!)
