A campaign to raise $500,000 for the Jewish Federation of St. Louis will begin December 2, it was announced by Julius Glaser, president of the Federation. The drive will be headed by Mark C. Steinberg and his cochairmen will be Frank Dubinsky and Charles M. Rice. The women’s division will be headed by Mrs. Charles M. Rice, whose cochairmen will be Mrs. Alvin L. Bauman.
The fund which the campaign will endeavor to raise from the Jewish citizens of St. Louis is for the purpose of providing adequate funds for twenty-six institutions, both local and national, which receive either their entire support or substantial subsidies from the Federation. Among them are the Jewish Hospital of St. Louis, the Jewish Sanatorium, the Miriam Convalescent-Rose Bry Home, the Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Orphans’ Home, the Dorothy Drey Sommers Shelter Home, the Welfare Bureau for Jewish Children, the Jewish Orthodox Old Folks’ Home, the Home for the Aged and Infirm Israelites, Gertrude Boys’ Home, the Associated Hebrew Schools, the Jewish Loan Association and the Young Men’s and Young Women’s Hebrew Association. Among out-of-town institutions receiving subsidies from the federation are the Cleveland Orphan Asylum, the Leo N. Levi Memorial Hospital at Hot Springs, Ark., and the National Farm School in Pennsylvania.
The St. Louis Federation will celebrate its 28th birthday simultancously with the opening of the drive. It is the only Jewish philanthropic Federation in the United States which can be decribed as a “100 percent federation,” Mr. Glaser stated. Every Jewish institution in this city is affiliated with it, and it draws its support from every section of the community.
