Jewish Community Center Opens in Lyons; Built with J.D.C. Assistance

A new community center to serve the historic Jewish community of Lyons, was dedicated here today. The construction of the center, the largest of more than 60 similar institutions built in Europe during the past six years, received financial and technical assistance from the American Joint Distribution Committee, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and Fonds Sociaie Juifs Unifie, the major French Jewish social welfare agency.
