Download PDF for this date

One-sixth of the estate of Israel Fine, poet and writer who was prominent in Zionist activities, has been left to create a foundation for the benefit of charitable and religious institutions. Mr. Fine’s will, including this provision, was filed in the Orphans’ Court today. The personal estate was estimated at fifty thousand dollars.

Agencies of the Associated Jewish Charities of Baltimore and institutions in Palestine will be the principal beneficiaries. The proportion to go to the Palestine institutions is to be divided between the United Charity Institutions of Jerusalem and fourteen other organizations there. The Baltimore Jewish Parochial School and the Talmud Torah, as well as the Maryland Workshop for the Blind, are among the beneficiaries.
