Toledo Jewish Center Studies Question of Functioning on Sabbath

The board of directors of the Toledo Jewish Center has appointed a special fact-finding committee to study the question of keeping the new center open on Saturdays.

The center, which is now open for a full program of activities, will be formally dedicated on September 13. There has been considerable discussion in the community as to whether the building should be kept open on Saturday or closed in observance of the Jewish Sabbath.

Advocates of a policy of having the building open on Saturdays stress the advantage of an organized program at the center for children over unorganized activities in poorer facilities or in the streets.
