Chicago Jewish Charities Seek 5,000 New Members

The official opening of the drive for additional members of the Jewish Charities of Chicago got under way yesterday at the Standard Club. The campaign committee, headed by Max Adler, hopes to enroll 5,000 new members. The fact that 3 per cent of the Jewish Charities’ members now contribute about 63 per cent of its revenue is responsible for the membership drive, since the loss of one or two of the key members would work havoc with the Charities’ resources. Seventeen philanthropic organizations in this city are affiliated with the Charities.
