Jewish charities in Johannesburg and Lithuania and various Palestine institutions are remembered to the extent of $34,250 in the will of the late Isaac Broude, active Jewish communal leader, who died here recently. In addition to these bequests the municipality of Johannesburg is to get $50,000 from his estate at the death of his wife.

Local Jewish philanthropies were bequeathed $25,000 and Palestine causes received $5,000. Mr. Broude’s native town, Sokolka, Lithuania, gets $2,500 for its Jewish community. Mr. Broude had lived in Johannesburg since 1887.

Simultaneously the South African campaign of the Jewish National Fund was enriched by a gift of 26 pounds, 5 shillings (about $131) from S. Muscraive, a Rhodesian Scotchman.
