Download PDF for this date

A Jewish boy, aged 14, was sentenced to fourteen rods after he was found guilty of theft. The sentence was imposed by the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court.

Irving H. Hellman, chairman of the United Jewish Welfare Fund campaign for $200,000 of Los Angeles, announced that a volunteer group of leading non-Jewish citizens has formed an American Christian fund to aid the Jewish appeal.

Edwin A. Meserve, who was chairman of a similar committee last year, is this year’s chairman.

About 50 per cent of the quota has been raised to date, according to Mr. Hellman.
