Asserting that the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States wishes to associate itself with the rescue and reconstruction efforts of the United Jewish Appeal, the Rt. Rev. Henry St. George Tucker, presiding Bishop, has sent a contribution of $1,000 to the U.J.A. campaign, it was announced here today.

In a letter addressed to Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, national chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, Bishop Tucker declared that he was aware of “the tremendous responsibility which is being carried on by the American Jewish community in meeting the tragic needs of the Jewish people around the world.”
