(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The Metropolitan Muscum of Art in New York has expressed a desire to own examples of miniature bronzes executed by Louis Rosenthal, Baltimore sculptor, according to an announcement made at a dinner of the Charcoal Club here.

Three New Yorkers, it is said, have purchased two specimens of Mr. Rosenthal’s work, which will be presented formally to the museum next fall. The directors of the Metropolitan are considering the purchase of two more and a fund was started under auspices of the Charcoal Club to buy two others to be given the museum.

Though no larger than a thumb nail, Mr. Rosenthal’s miniatures are perfect in every detail. Some of them have been exhibited throughout the world and have attracted wide attention.

An intensive campaign to advance Jewish religious education through the immediate enrollment of 10,000 additional children in religious schools of New York City was launched Sunday night at the Forty-eighth Street Theatre, at the first annual conference of more than 1,000 workers of Ivriah, the Women’s Division of the Jewish Education Association.
