I'm posting from Mexico with a slow connection, so I'll just quickly note that "The Maccabean" refers to Papa's chapter of the Zionist fraternal order, B'nai Zion (check out previous entries about B'nai Zion here.) The Pennsylvania Hotel has also shown up in Papa's diary a few times because it seems to have been a location of choice for Zionist events (here's a bit more on the Pennsylvania Hotel.)
