Jewish Documents from American Revolutionary Period Exhibited in N. Y

Mayor Robert F. Wagner launched a 12-day exhibition of rare Catholic, Protestant and Jewish objects and documents from the American Revolutionary period at a special City Hall ceremony today. The exhibit, entitled “1776–One Nation Under God,” is jointly sponsored by the National Conference of Christians and Jews and the Morris Morgenstern Foundation and will be on exhibit at the Building for Brotherhood.

During the ceremony, the Mayor presented $10,000 in Morgenstern Foundation Scholarships to 25 high school students to enable them to attend a camp on human relations sponsored each summer by the New York area of the NCCJ. The students, who were selected from each of the city’s five boroughs, have all demonstrated interest and achievement in stimulating inter-group understanding.
