(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The largest sum ever given for higher Jewish education in the state of New Jersey was announced today by Jacob Fabian, theatre owner and prominent Jewish philanthropist of this city.

Inaugurating the campaign for $500,000 in the state of New Jersey to complete the Yeshiva College of America, Mr. Fabian contributed the amount of $50,000 ten per cent. of the sum sought on the condition that the remainder is raised.

The campaign in New Jersey will start the beginning of December and quotas for the various Jewish communities in the state have been allocated. It is stated here that several other Jewish businessmen who are interested in promoting higher Jewish learning through the Yeshiva College will make similar contributions on the basis of a percentage of the total sum raised.
