Plan New Jewish Charities Scheme in London with Fund of $1,000,000 Left in 1913

Download PDF for this date

A charitable scheme “to sustain poor Jews who in consequence of religious persecution or other misfortune shall take refuge in England” is now being prepared here with a fund of $1,000,000 left in 1913 by the late Adolph Haendler, a French Jew. Owing to the intervention of the ware the scheme was never organized but it has now been revived. Twenty Jewish charitable instututions in London would benefit from Haendler’s bequest.

The subject arose when the attorney general asked the chancery court here that the charity created by the bequest “to the Israelite community of London bearing the names of Nathan and Adolph Haendler,” be administered under the order of the court. A plan for the use of the money drawn up by the attorney-general’s office was approved by the court.

The trustees of the bequest are Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz, Lionel Nathan de Rothschild and Robert Revel.
