Philadelphia, Through with One Campaign, Will Start Another

(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Immediately upon the announcement of the success of the United Jewish Campaign in this city where the quota of $150,000 was oversubscribed by $39,358, plans were launched for another campaign, the yearly drive for the support of the Federation of Jewish Charities.

Judge Horace Stern, who presided at the final meeting and dinner of the workers in the United Jewish Campaign of this city, announced that Albert H. Lieberman had agreed to head the campaign for the support of the Federation of Jewish Charities. The new drive is to begin January 16. Mr. Lieberman said plans already had been made to enroll 10,000 persons, who have not yet subscribed to the Federation’s funds.

Congressman Benjamin Golder promised that every division leader in Philadelphia will aid in compiling a list which for the first time will make a record of the names of all Jewish residents of this city more than 21 years of age.

One hundred teams will be organized, Mr. Lieberman said. The heads of various Jewish social service agencies will address 150 meetings.
