Jewish Fraternal Order Launches Campaign for Korean Relief

Download PDF for this date

The Workmen’s Circle, largest Jewish fraternal organization, numbering 70,000 families, today launched a national clothes-gathering campaign for Korean relief.

Responding immediately to the appeal of President Eisenhower to keep faith with our South Korean allies, the Workmen’s Circle has called upon its 700 chapters throughout the United States to throw all their resources into the campaign to get much needed clothing to Korea before the approach of winter.
