Cincinnati Jewish Agencies Get $500,000 Legacy Left 20 Years Ago

A 20-year-old legacy of $500,000 is being divided on a fifty-fifty basis between the Jewish Hospital of Cincinnati and the Associated Jewish Charities. Mrs. Rose Rothschild, who died in 1945, left the $500,000 to Jewish philanthropies in Cincinnati. Her will stipulated only that the money be used to honor the memory of here brother Charles I. Dreifus.

James R. Clark, estate trustee, said that the legacy will be disbursed by a Rothschild-Dreifus Fund and that Mrs. Rothschild had chosen William J. Shroder and Herbert Cettinger as advisors to choose the beneficiary agencies. The Jewish Hospital and the AJA have received income annually from the principal of the estate. Under the will, the principal is to be paid to the beneficiary agencies.
