The Home for Aged and Infirm Hebrews will receive $25,000 outright and $750,000 after the death of Mrs. Amelia G. Friedman, widow of Solomon Friedman, who died Jan. 2, 1927, whose estate has been appraised at $3,300,287 net. After gifts to relatives, the widow gets the income from the estate of more than $3,000,000.

Besides the Home for Aged and Infirm Hebrews, of which Mr. Friedman was treasurer, the Hebrew Orphan Asylum will get $5,000 outright and $50,000 upon the death of Mrs. Friedman. The Convalescent Home for Crippled Children will get a similar bequest. Mount Sinai Hospital receives $7,500 outright, and thirty other institutions receive $2,500 or $5,000 outright and $5,000 each upon the death of the widow.

The rest of the principal of the trust fund is to go to Jewish institutions to be named by the executors after the death of Mrs. Friedman.
