Download PDF for this date

Hartford Zionists have pledged themselves to secure $6,000 for the Jewish National Fund during the next two years for the purpose of sending four ex-Legionaires to settle in Palestine. A resolution to this effect was adopted at a gathering of more than 200 Zionists gathered at the Emanuel Synagogue, Sunday, which was addressed by Abe Goldberg of New York.

Jewish charitable organizations of Hartford will benefit to the extent of approximately $75,000, as a result of the recent Community Chest drive for $650,000. Among the organizations which will benefit are the Jewish Orphan Asylum, The Old People’s Home and others.

The family of the late Moses Stern has established a fund, estimated at $30,000, which aims to assist worthy young women of Hartford who are dependent upon their own efforts for support to procure medical care when their salaries do not provide sufficient surplus for such attention.

Moses Fox, a member of the firm of one of the largest department stores in New England, has donated $10,000 towards the support of a free bed at St. Francis Hospital here.
