Denver Jewish Consumptive Relief Society Weicomes Lifting of Ban on N.Y. Fund-raising

An announcement yesterday in New York that grounds for complaints within and outside the Jewish Consumptive Relief Society of Denver have now been removed and that the ban on soliciting funds for this institution in New York State has, therefore, been lifted, was welcomed here today by Noah A. Alter, president of the institution. The announcement was made by Nathaniel L. Goldstein, New York State Attorney-General, who previously issued the injunction.

The Jewish Consumptive Relief Society in the past collected an average of $500,000 a year from citizens of New York State. In his statement here today Mr. Alter said that the injunction put a serious crimp in J.C.R.S. funds. He appealed to supporters of the institution to come to its financial aid “to maintain its humanitarian, charitable services to tuberculars of all faiths.”

Mr. Alter emphasized that he received pledges of support from the New York advisory board and New York auxiliaries of the J.C.R.S. which will resume their fundraising activities on behalf of the Denver sanatorium.
