Bequests of $8,000 to Jewish charitable institutions are made in the will of Edward Weisel, who died October 26. The document was filed for probate in Surrogate’s Court yesterday afternoon. The estate was valued formally at “more than $10,000.”

The Hebrew Orphan Asylum is to receive $5,000, while sums of $2,000 and $5,000 are bequeathed to Montefiore Hospital and Mount Neboh Congregation, 130 West Seventy-ninth street, respectively.

The widow, Mrs. Mary Weisel, of 2065 Grand Concourse, the Bronx, is to receive the income from a trust fund of $25,000 until her death or remarriage. Two children, a son, Daniel, and a daughter, Mrs. Julia Siegfried, both of the Bronx address, are each to receive $2,000 in cash and a temporary life estate in one-half the residue.

The executor is the Manufacturers Trust Company, 55 Broadway.
