(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

With Adolph Finsterwald as chairman, a campaign for $100,000 as Detroit’s share toward the new buildings of the Cleveland Jewish Orphan Home will open following Labor Day.

Mr. Finsterwald, a graduate of the Home, has announced his contribution as $10,000, or ten percent of the quota. Adolph Freund, former president of the home and active as a trustee and director since it was founded in 1968, will serve as honorary campaign chairman, and Dr. Charles A. Smith, a graduate and member of the board, will act as campaign secretary.

During the month of September campaigns for the Cleveland Orphan Home will also be held in the various communities throughout Michigan. Edward Lichtig of Bay City is the state chairman.
