A specially designed volume of “Who’s Who in World Jewry” was presented to Mayor Wagner at a City Hall ceremony this week-end. In his acceptance speech, the Mayor said he was proud that one-fifth of the entries in the volume referred to New York Jews. Of the 11,000 capsule biographies in the book, over 6,000 are of American Jews with some 2,000 drawn from New York.
