Download PDF for this date

In memory of his wife who died during the year, Leon Van Vliet has established a $10,000 Carrie Belle Van Vliet Memorial Scholarship Loan Fund, under the direction of the Sisterhood of Temple Beth El. Worthy students are to be assisted with this fund in the pursuit of their undergraduate studies.

This is the third Scholarship Fund that has been established in connection with Temple Beth El. The first of these funds to be established was the M. C. Weil Memorial Scholarship Loan Fund to which Mrs. M. C. Weil, Mrs. J. Victor Roemer and Victor H. Weil are annual contributors. The other is known as the Temple Student Loan Fund which is supported by a number of men and women who are identified with Temple Beth El.
