Download PDF for this date

The formation of a National Quota Committee, composed of 39 leading Jewish communal and welfare fund leaders from every section of the United States, to advise local Jewish communities on the share they are requested to assume in the nationwide United Jewish Appeal campaign for $100,000,000 to assure the success of that “historic undertaking” was announced today by Charles J. Rosenbloom, William Rosenwald and Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, national chairmen of the United Jewish Appeal.

Establishment of the committee, which will recommend individual quotas to the more than 4,000 local communities participating in the campaign, was one of the decisions adopted by the national conference of the United Jewish Appeal in Atlantic City recently.
