(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The synagogue which has been erected here by the seventeen Jewish families resident in this town at an estimated cost of $25,000 will be completed next month. Seventeen Jewish families have contributed $15,000 for the synagogue. Leaders of the congregation have appealed to non-Jewish citizens of High Point to assist by contributing $10,000.

The new synagogue is one of the most impressive edifices in the city. The building will accommodate approximately 500 people.

The campaign and building committees are headed by Milton Silver.
