Download PDF for this date

District representatives from the United States and Canada will witness ceremonies marking the completion of the purchase of $100,000 worth of War Bonds by the Jewish National Workers’ Alliance, a fraternal benefit organization, at that body’s annual conference opening tomorrow at the Hotel Astor here.

This sum has been appropriated out of the national treasury as a special contribution in addition to the more than $500,000 worth of bonds already purchased by members and branches of the organization. The Alliance has also bought $30,000 worth of Canadian Victory Bonds as a token of appreciation of the war effort of its affiliate groups across the border.

In a preliminary report sent to the members of the General Executive Committee and to the district representatives by Louis Segal, General Secretary, it is stated further that the Alliance has so far this year raised more than $175,000 for United Nations War Relief, for American Red Cross and USO, and for Palestine. The two-day session will hear reports of the patriotic, Zionist: educational and fraternal work of the organization, which has 274 branches in 148 communities from coast to coast.
