Only Jewish School in Havana Threatens to Close

The Philadelphia Stock Exchange announces that Frank L. Newburger, partner of the firm of Newburger, Loeb & Co., has been unanimously elected President.

The only Jewish school threatens to close down as a result of the difficult economic situation prevailing in the island.

The Jewish People’s School, which is maintained at the Jewish Center here, provides education for 350 children, of whom some two hundred are the children of parents unable to contribute financially towards their education.

The management of the school plans to devote a whole week to a campaign for raising a sufficient sum to enable the school to continue. An appeal is being issued to the Jewish population to do all in their power to prevent the closing down of the school, which would mean that at least 200 Jewish children would be left without any education.
