The 300th anniversary of the birth of Baruch Spinoza, occurring on Thursday, November 24th, will be observed by Jewish Centers, Y.M.H.A.’s, and Y.W.H.A.’s in the United States and Canada. They will conduct exercises in commemoration of the event during November.

The Jewish Welfare Board, the national organization with which the Jewish Centers are affiliated, will issue program material, and striking quotations from his writings.
