A fund of $100,000, to be utilized for the establishment of kindergartens in connection with Talmud Torahs, was launched by Ivriah, the Women’s Division of the Jewish Education Association, at a joint meeting of its executive committee and district chairmen at the Federation Building, New York. The project was enthusiastically received by those who attended, and the first event for its realization will be in the form of a $50 luncheon where all those present will contribute a minimum sum of $50 as an admission charge.
The meeting was presided over by Mrs. Gabriel Hamburger, chairman of Ivriah, and Mrs. Max Lazare of the West Side district was appointed chairman of the Fund Committee. The luncheon will coincide with the fifth anniversary of the founding of the organization, and Mrs. Hamburger emphasized the fact that, although Ivriah is not a fund-raising organization, an exception is being made in the case of the anniversary function, and on behalf of the Kindergarten Fund.
