Seasongood Heads Cincinnati Jewish Welfare Fund Drive

Former Mayor Murray Seasongood will be the chairman of Cincinnati’s first joint Jewish Welfare Fund campaign, which is to conduct a $200,000 drive early in October. Plans for the drive were formulated at a luncheon to members of the Cincinnati Jewish Community Council.

Out of the $200,000 which is to be asked of the Jewish community here, $100,000 will go as Cincinnati’s share of the Allied Jewish Campaign, while the other $100,000 will go to Jewish organizations receiving funds in Cincinnati, but which are not eligible to the Cincinnati Community Chest.

Until Mr. Seasongood returns from Europe late in August, William J. Shroder will act as chairman of the campaign. Samuel Ach and Sidney Freiberg are the honorary vice-chairmen. Bernard Pepinsky is executive secretary, Kurt Peiser is secretary and Warren J. Heldman is treasurer.
