Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller, who joined 100 Jewish community leaders in launching a summertime telephone drive on behalf of the United Jewish Appeal of Greater New York, received an award today citing his leadership in UJA’s cause.

The presentation was made at New York UJA campaign headquarters by Jack D. Weiler, a chairman of the New York United Jewish Appeal Trustees. The “Person-to-Person” session at which it took place was one of the major events of the 25th annual New York UJA drive, now in progress. The UJA award presented to the Governor expressed “appreciation of his distinguished efforts on behalf of UJA as an individual, as Governor, and as first chairman of New York’s Non-Sectarian Community Committee for UJA.”
