B’nai B’rith Youth Contribute Money to Aid Earthquake-damaged Temple

The three components of the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization will contribute $200 toward repairing the damage sustained by Temple Beth Solomon of the Deaf of San Fernando in the southern California earthquake last month. A survey by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations at the time showed that the temple which serves the only deaf group in the world to have its own synagogue, was the hardest hit of all Reform congregations in the earthquake area. The contribution was approved by the presidents of the Aleph Zadik Aleph, the B’nai B’rith Girls and the B’nai B’rith Young Adults. They announced the gifts after learning that the congregants planned a drive to raise $5,000 to rebuild the damaged part of the temple.
