Download PDF for this date

Completion of twelve years of organized philanthropy under the auspices of the Jews of New York will be marked next Sunday afternoon at four o’clock in the new Community House of Congregation Emanu-El, Sixty-fifth Street and Fifth Avenue when the annual meeting of the Federation for the support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies will take place. George McAneny, former president of the Board of Aldermen and former president of the Borough of Manhattan, will deliver the principal address. Mr. McAneny is a member of the Regional Plan of New York and Its Environs and his subject will be Communal Planning.

In announcing that Mr. McAneny would deliver the main talk, Sol M. Stroock, president of the Federation, stated that the Jews of New York, through an impartial survey, have been studying for the last two years the communal resources and needs of the New York Jewish community, and also were deeply concerned in the general study being made by the Regional Plan.

Mr. Stroock, president of the organization, who is completing his third term, and Walter E. Beer, treasurer of (###) Federation, will submit their reports.

The terms of eight trustees-at-large will expire on the date of the annual meeting and a ninth trustee-at-large will be elected to fill the vacancy on the board created by the recent death of Col. H. A. Guinzburg, who also was treasurer of the Federation. The trustees whose terms will expire include Zion de Frece Bernstein, Joseph L. Buttenwieser, Benjamin F. Feiner, Dr. Lee K. Frankel, Jonah J. Goldstein, I. Edwin Goldwasser, Henry E. Samstag and Felix M. Warburg.

The meeting will afford the general public the first opportunity to see the newly-erected Community House of Temple Emanu-El.
