Want Half Million for Jewish Education in Europe

August 16, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A campaign to raise a half million dollars for the promotion of Jewish education in the war stricken districts of Europe has been launched by the Central Relief Committee.

The Committee announces it has undertaken the task of providing Jewish education for 250,000 children of whom 26,000 are orphans. The Central Relief Committee in its appeal alleges that the Joint Distribution Committee has entirely discontinued its cultural work and is therefore alone in this field. Leon Kamaiky is Chairman, and Harry Fischel, treasurer of the Committee.
