Call Emergency Meeting to Discuss Federation’s Deficit

Download PDF for this date

An emergency meeting of the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies will be held Wednesday to discuss plans for removing the first deficit in the Federation’s annual budget that it has faced in thirteen years. A goal of $2,047,000 was announced when the Federation began its campaign on October 20, but subscriptions to date are $258,000 short of this needed sum.

As a result of this deficit the campaign will be continued until the evening of January 10, whereas in other years the total amount had been subscribed before the last day of the year. Sam A. Lewisohn, chairman of the campaign, will preside at Wednesday’s meeting, which will follow a luncheon at the Bankers’ Club.
