Warburg Calls for Holy Day Aid Campaign

More than forty communities of the Seaboard Region will be invited by Felix M. Warburg, chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, to hold High Holy Day appeals for the campaign, it was announced today.

“Thousands of Jews have been helped to retrain for new vocations,” Mr. Warburg said in his plea to aid their German brethren, “and their elementary relief needs have to be furnished. Their fundamental cultural and educational institutions have been maintained. Orderly immigration to other countries has been facilitated.

“Systematic provision for the thousands of refugees outside Germany was made possible through funds furnished by the United Jewish Appeal. To Palestine have come thousands of German Jews, finding new opportunities for a free and morally healthful life.
