Jews and Gentiles united in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Congregation Children of Abraham of Easton, more than 300 persons being present at the banquet held in the Y.M.H.A. auditorium.

Judge William M. McKeen, of the Northampton county bench, and Mayor F. C. Roberts were among the speakers. The principal speaker was Rabbi J. Hahn, of New York City. Other speakers were Rabbi Shapiro, of Easton, and Israel Krohn, a member of the congregation, who was toastmaster.

A number of the founders of the congregation were present at the banquet.

All speakers stressed conditions in Germany at the present time and urged Jews in the United States to aid the Jews in Germany.
