(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

A bequest of 25,000, to be held in trust and the income used for the maintenance of a gymnasium and natatorium for the children of the congregation, has been made to the Rodef Shalom Temple in the will of the late Leon Falk, prominent Pittsburgh steel man and philanthropist. The fund is given in memory of his mother, Fanny Edel Falk, and will be known as the “Fanny Edel Falk Memorial.”

The sum of $200,000 has been left to his son, Leon Falk, Jr., who, it is understood, will turn the money over to charity.
