Download PDF for this date

A number of Jewish institutions were made beneficiaries of the will of Charles Eisenman, for twenty years President of the Cleveland Federation of Jewish Charities, who died last week.

The will provides $10,000 for a Jewish home for poor children. The sum of $50,000 is left for the Federation of Jewish Charities, $2,000 for the Jewish Publication Society of America and $2,500 for the Hebrew Union College. The will provides that upon the death of the widow, two thirds of the remainder of the estate is to go to charity. The entire estate is estimated at $250,000.
