(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Joseph Stern, general manager of the Stanley-Fabian Corporation, announced the creation of a $50,000 foundation to assist worthy Jewish charities in Newark. His action is to commemorate his fiftieth birthday.

The Joseph Stern Foundation, according to a letter sent by Mr. Stern to Felix Fuld, vice-president of L. Bamberger & Co., whom he asked to serve as chairman of the committee which will hold the money in trust, will utilize the annual interest and not more than three per cent of the principal for Jewish organizations that require help. Mr. Fuld has accepted the chairmanship of the committee, which includes Michael Hollander, A. J. Dimond, Michael Stravitsky and Mr. Stern.


The publication of a Jewish history that meets the needs of the Jewish childen on the farms and in the rural districts, has been announced by the Department of Farm and Rural Work, of the National Council of Jewish Women, through its National Chairman, Mrs. Elmer Eckhouse.

The first book in the series has been prepared by Sarah L. Liebert, Supervisor of Jewish Education of the Council’s Department of Farm and Rural Work. It deals with the period of the patriarchs and is written from a novel point of view. The Bible and the Talmudic stories of the patriarchs are woven into a composite unit, so that the child may gain a unified impression of all Jewish traditions that cluster around any single character. Legendary traditions and historical facts are combined in this publication.
