Pittsburgh Jewish Federation Concludes 1967 Campaign; $1,903,450 Raised

The United Jewish Federation campaign for 1967 concluded here last night with a total of $1,903,450 raised, exceeding its goal by more than $3,000. It was the second successive year in which Pittsburgh has met its goal.

More than 400 volunteers assembled at Green Oaks Country Club to hear the results of the campaign. Alvin Rogal, UJF president, congratulated Donald M. Robinson, the general chairman of the campaign for leading the community “to a fabulous success.” Mr. Robinson complimented the young leadership declaring that “this campaign was in the hands of the young.” More than 13,000 persons, including some non-Jews, contributed to this year’s campaign. This was the largest number of contributors in UJF campaigns.
