Reviewing the first twenty-five years of the Jewish Welfare Association of this city, I. S. Joseph, president of the organization, pointed out that where in 1934 the association had disbursed $47,719.97, for charitable purposes, in 1912, the first year of its existence, it had spent only $8,300.

In his annual report Mr. Joseph pointed out that the communal welfare needs of Minneapolis have become much greater in the last few years because of general economic conditions. He also pointed out that in the last twenty-five years the Jewish community of this city has grown from 8,000 to 22,000.

The organization last year received $47,812.00 from the community fund.
