Samuel E. Kohn, president of the congregation of Temple Emanuel, Denver, Col., was elected president of the Denver Community Chest for 1929. The election of officers for next year was made at a meeting following the conclusion of this year’s campaign for funds.
Two other Jewish men were elected to important posts for next year’s Chest. Isadore Samuels, who two years ago headed the campaign, and has been active in the work this and last year, was one of the four men named by the Denver Chamber of Commerce for the board of directors. Milton Schayer was selected to serve three years on the board of directors. Jewish agencies listed under the Community Chest are the Beth Israel Home for Old Folks, and the Denver National Home for Jewish Children.
