To Open Brooklyn Drive for Synagogue Membership

Download PDF for this date

Arnold M. Schmidt, of Union Temple, chairman of the Brooklyn Committee of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, has sent out a call for a meeting to be held September 7, in the Community House of Temple Beth Elohim, 8th Avenue and Garfield Place, to inaugurate a membership drive to cover all of Brooklyn and to reach every Jew in Brooklyn not affiliated with a congregation.

The membership drive will be conducted under the auspices of the North East Religious Union, regional division of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, parent body of all the reform Jewish congregations of the United States. Mr. Schmidt has addressed his call to the reform congregations of Brooklyn, but he stresses the fact that no special effort will be made in favor of the reform group.
