The 1965 Appeal of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston closed last night with a total of $5, 183, 000, surpassing last year’s total by some $150, 000.

Abraham Goodman, general campaign chairman, told more than 400 campaign leaders and workers at the campaign closing dinner that the 1965 figure “represents more than dollars alone, but rather a commitment on the part of our entire Boston Jewish community to the concept of a strong well-organized Jewish community capable of responding to the wide variety of needs.”

Expressing the appreciation of the entire community to Mr. Goodman and “his wonderful campaign team for reversing the trend,” Sidney Stoneman, president of the CJP pointed out that this year’s increased results were particularly gratifying in “this cur 70th Anniversary year, commemorating the birth of the first united philanthropic federation in the country.” Dr. Benjamin B. Rosenberg is executive director of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies. Aaron Levine is campaign director.
