Los Angeles Jewish Institutions Get $100,000 to Aid Aged Nazi Victims

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A home for the Jewish aged in this city and a Jewish center here have received $100,000 from funds obtained for heirless Jewish property in Germany by the Jewish Restitution Successor Organization there. The money will be spent on two projects for the aged in which priority will be given to Nazi victims living in Los Angeles.

United Help, Inc., a national agency providing special care for Nazi victims in the United States, received the $100,000 from the JRSO and turned over the sum to the Jewish Club of 1933, an organization of former German Jewish refugees here. The club, in turn, gave $80,000 to the Jewish Home for the Aged to provide a new residential facility to care for its senior members, and $20,000 to the Westside Jewish Community Center to create a senior adult day care center.

The national agency turned the funds over to the club after consultation with the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles.
