Steps to collect exact data on the losses of the Jewish population in the devastated region were taken by the Jewish Relief Committee of Miami when it despatched several survey commissions which are to visit the entire stricken district. Whether or not the Jewish Relief Committee of Miami is to issue a nationwide appeal to American Jews or only a statewide appeal to Florida Jews was debated at yesterday’s meeting of the Committee. The belief was expressed that the stricken Jews are not in such great distress as to necessitate a nationwide appeal. The question will be taken up again following the arrival of Dr. Boris D. Bogen, Executive Secretary of the Independent Order B’nai B’rith, and other Jewish social workers.
Rabbi I. S. Ravech of Daytona, Florida, notified the Miami Committee that the Jewish community of northern Florida have pledged the amount of $10,000 for relief.
