S. Kanengieser, newly elected grand master of the Independent Order Brith Sholom, and former Prosecutor Jacob L. Newman, chairman of the current United Jewish Appeal drive. Rabbi Harry S. Jacobs of Newark will give the invocation and Rabbi B. L. Stolper of Montclair will give the benediction. Abraham Silverstein, chairman of the committee of sponsors, will preside.
