Mexican Jewish Leader Establishes 1,000.000-peso Foundation

Elias Sourasky, noted Jewish philanthropist and Zionist leader, today announced his establishment of a-1,000,000 peso foundation for Jewish communal and philanthropic purposes. The foundation will bear the name of his only son, Jacob Sourasky, who died last year. Interest and dividends accruing to the fund will be distributed among various Jewish organizations and institutions here by a committee which will be formed soon to administer the foundation.
