(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Five days of active canvassing resulted in nearly $350,000 pledged toward the United Jewish Appeal, this city’s joint drive for $600,000 in behalf of the United Jewish Camapign, the United Palestine Appeal and the local Conference of Jewish Charities. The drive is scheduled to end tomorrow. The subscriptions reported include pledges of $1.500 from non-Jews. Morris Scheck is chairman of the campaign.

The movement to erect a Jewish community center in Jacksonville. Fla., was organized by the B’nai Israel congregation when it was decided to launch a campaign to raise a fund of $250,000, the estimated cost of the building.

The Young Men’s Hebrew Association, the Daugthers of Israel, the Hebrew Junior League. Jacksonville Lodge Independent Order Brith Sholom, Jacksonville Zionistic District, the Camp. Order Sons of Zion. Jacksonville Hebrew Free Loan Society and the Young Judaea Clubs have combined in this campaign.
