Cleveland Organizes Permanent Committee for Jewish Philantropies

(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Organization of a permanent committee which will function in behalf of any worthy cause, was announced here by Sam Hartman, who was chairman of the organization committee for the United Jewish Campaign in Cleveland.

Hartman’s announcement was the result of several days consideration on the part of the campaign leaders. They came to the conclusion that since Cleveland was capable of exceeding its original quota in the United Jewish Campaign drive by nearly $200,000 the Jews of the city are eager to do their part in behalf of any important cause if only the organization exists to undertake the work.

Cleveland’s quota in the United Jewish Campaign had been set at $550,000. When the drive ended here subscriptions totalling $701,076 had been received.
