Download PDF for this date

Turning insurance salesmen in an attempt to save their synagogue from foreclosure, the officers of the Herzl Congregation here are now selling policies so that they may create a trust fund. The plan was submitted to the congregation by Martin B. Klatzker, son of one of its trustees, who has turned in his personal commissions of $1,700 to the synagogue’s funds. The Herzl Congregation’s debts now amount to $60,000. Policies amounting tp $75,000 have already been sold.
