A quota of $141,500 for the Jewish Welfare Fund Campaign has been set by the Jewish Community Council. Of this, $30,000 has been budgeted to the Joint Distribution Committee for aiding Jews who must leave Germany and $17,500 for relief of Jews remaining in the Reich. Another $10,000 has been assigned for Palestine work. There are 35 organizations which will benefit from the drive. Troy Kaichen will head the men’s division and Mrs. George Sickles the women’s division. Mrs. Philip Trounstine, wife of Cincinnati’s volunteer assistant welfare commissioner, is women’s vice-chairman.
