Congress House a recreational and education center for German refugees of Nazi persecution located at 58 West Sixty-eighth street, will be ready for occupancy this Fall, according to the Women’s Association of the American Jewish Congress.

At present, it was stated yesterday, only the interior furnishings remain to be supplied. The building itself was made possible by the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Institute of Religion.

Meanwhile, members of the committee in charge are planning outings and benefit shows, the proceeds of which will be used to complete the furnishings.

Tomorrow a picnic has been arranged by the Bronx division of the Women’s Association. Funds raised from this picnic to be held at Tibbetts Brook Park will make it possible to outfit the kitchen equipment.
