Contributions totaling $120,000 have already been received by the Jewish Education Association which initiated its $500,000 Scholarship Fund campaign last Sunday night, Jonah Goldstein, chairman of the campaign announced.

“New York recognizes Jewish education of its youth as its greatest need today,” Mr. Goldstein said. “We have been feeding half the world out of the abundance that America has given us but we have forgotten that life needs other things than bread–faith and knowledge. If Judaism is to survive in America beyond this generation, the Jewish Education Association and movements like it must be fostered and liberally aided.”
