(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Cooperation in the campaign for Chicago’s quota in the United Palestine Appeal, was decided upon at the semi-annual meeting of the Union of Orthodox Congregations, which comprises 49 synagogues.

A committee was appointed to work out plans for cooperating in the campaign, which was determined by the unanimous acceptance of a resolution introduced by B. Horowitz. H. Bolstein presided at the meeting.

The congregation of the Central Synagogue, New York City, voted unanimously to purchase the Studio Club Building at 35 and 37 East Sixty-Sccond Street for a community house.

It was estimated that the total outlay of the temple through its purchase would be approximately $250,000 and that the annual maintenance of the new building would not exceed $15,000. The structure is six stories high and occupies a lot 40 by 100 feet.

The dedication will probably take place in October. It will house the religious school, the Sisterhood, the Brother hood, young people’s clubs, the temple’s library and offices.

Samuel B. Hamburger is President of the temple. Dr.Jonah B. Wise is rabbi.

The trustees of the Daughters of Israel Home for the Aged of Newark, N. J., have purchased a large tract of land from Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hollander of that city. A new institution to cost approximately $1,000,000 will be erected on the site.
