Boston Jews Top $5,425,000 Drive for Combined Jewish Appeal; Aim at $6,000,000

The sum of $5,641,932 has been contributed by Boston Jewry toward the $5,425,000 campaign undertaken by the Combined Jewish Appeal here, it was announced today by Herman Gilman, chairman, at a final report luncheon attended by 200 key campaign workers.

Mr. Gilman said he was confident that Boston Jewry could, through intensified effort over this week-end, reach $6,000,000 before Sunday night’s victory dinner. His challenge was immediately adopted. Sidney S. Cohen, executive director of the drive, stated that “there are still baskets full” of unopened contributions, responses to a mail appeal, and that he felt the $6,000,000 goal would be reached.
