Frankfort Yeshiva Appeals for Aid

Download PDF for this date

The Frankfort Yeshiva, known as “Kehal Adass Yeschurun,” is in such financial straits that for the first time in its half a century of existence, it is compelled to appeal to American Jews for aid.

This information was imparted by Max Hackenbroch, who has come to this country in the interests of the institution.

“The old Frankfort Jewish community,” stated Mr. Hackenbroch to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, “which is famous for its traditional charitable activity among world Jewry, is now obliged to ask for help from its American brethren.

“It would be a great loss for German Jewry, especially in this time of Hitlerism, should such an important institution of Jewish learning be compelled to close its doors, because of lack of means,” Mr. Hackenbroch stated.
