Future of Hias Activities Depends on Response to Appeal for Funds

National Directors of the Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society are urged to arrange for appeals to be made on behalf of Hias during the coming High Holy Days in the synagogues of their respective communities, in a communication sent out by Abraham Herman..

These synagogue appeals made every year, Mr. Herman says, are more urgent this year for “conditions are such that the results of these synagogue appeals will decide as to the continuation of many of the Hias activities in behalf of those of our people who turn to it for assistance, guidance and protection”.

In a statement addressed to the Jews of the country, Mr. Herman asks American Jewry to help Hias continue to “still the hunger of the unemployed and homeless and ease the path of the Jewish wanderers”.
