Boston Ready for $250,000 Jewish Philanthropy Drive

Download PDF for this date

Plans for a $250,000 campaign for the Associated Jewish Philanthropies of Boston were completed yesterday at a meeting of the campaign’s leaders. The funds are needed to insure the efficient operation of 20 Jewish institutions affiliated with the association. The regular annual campaign that began last Fall netted over a half million dollars but was interrupted because of business conditions. It will now be resumed in full swing to meet the annual budgetary requirements.

Louis E. Kirstein is president of the Associated and Sydney Dreyfus is chairman of the drive.
