Charles Kraemer of Newark, president of the New Jersey B’nai B’rith Council, today made public the appointment of Charles Roemer of Paterson as head of the Jersey B’nai B’rith Membership Campaign Committee and Judge Joseph Siegler of Newark as chairman of a committee arranging the formation of new lodges throughout the state. Fred Jay of Newark, past president of District No. 3, will serve as vice-chairman of Judge Siegler’s committee.

These appointments were made to facilitate New Jersey’s membership campaign, part of the drive to gain 75,000 new members for B’nai B’rith on the occasion of the seventy-fifth birthday of the president of the order, Alfred M. Cohen of Cincinnati, which will be celebrated on October 19.

The New Jersey State Committee is to cooperate with the District No. # Membership Campaign Committee (comprising the states of New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia) of which Dr. Louis Gershenfeld of Philadelphia is chairman.
