The Jewish Welfare federation was effected this week for the purpose of co-ordinating welfare and relief work in this city. Henry Wineman was chosen provisional president.

The aim of the Federation is stated to be “to raise and collect funds, acquire and hold property by purchase, bequest or otherwise, and to distribute and use the same for the advancement of the social and cultural welfare of the community and for the promotion of other philanthropies and to bring about cooperation among Jewish welfare and relief organizations in Detroit.”
