Rabbi Ferdinand M. Isserman of St. Louis will make a speaking tour of Florida communities this week in behalf of the United Jewish Appeal, it was announced yesterday at the national headquarters of that fund-raising organization. Rabbi Isserman will report on conditions in Germany, in the Saar and in the refugee countries, as he found them in his recent visit to those territories.

The cities included in Rabbi Isserman’s trip are Jacksonville on March 12, Tampa, March 13; West Palm Beach, March 15, and Miami on March 17. Each of these cities will launch campaigns for the United Jewish Appeal on the date that Rabbi Isserman addresses them.
