The first Combined Jewish Appeal in the history of the Edmonton Jewish community was underway today with a goal of $120,000, which is about $25,000 more than was raised in multiple campaigns here last year.

The first single drive includes the United Jewish Appeal, the United Jewish relief agencies of the Canada Jewish Congress and the Edmonton Jewish Community Council. The campaign will end November 20.
