(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The Jewish community of Washington, D.C., will start its annual campaign for the United Palestine Appeal on April 22, with a goal of $35,000, which is part of the quota of $250,000 adopted by the Sea-board Region.

The Washington leaders have evolved a plan whereby certificates ranging from twenty-five dollars up are sold for cash and entitle the contributor to attend the Victory banquet held at the conclusion of the campaign. This plan has been tried previously in Washington with successful results. It is expected that Dr. Chaim Weizmann will attend the Victory Banquet at the end of this year’s drive.

The following officers have been elected to head the campaign committee: Isidore Hershfield, who is also chairman of the Seaboard Region United Palestine Appeal, will be the campaign chairman; Levi H. Davie, co-chairman; Mrs. J. M. Safer, Zalman Henkin, Morris Garfinkel, Charles Stein, Mrs. Morris Freilicoff, Vice Chairmen; Paul Himmelfarb, Treasurer; Abe Shefferman, Secretary.

All Jewish organizations in Washington have been invited to participate in the campaign, and most of these bodies have already forwarded the names of their representatives to the Campaign Committee.
