Download PDF for this date

The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, which has its headquarters at the Yeshivah College Building, has launched a Nation-wide Synagogue Membership Campaign, William Weiss, President of the Union, announces.

The purpose of the drive is to induce unaffiliated Jews to join their neighborhood Synagogue.

Another feature of the drive will be to urge patrons to give their children a religious education.

A National Membership Committee, with Max S. Rosenfeld, President of the Ohab Zedek Synagogue, and also President of the Hebrew Teachers’ Training School for Girls, as Chairman, has been organized with units in the principal Jewish communities throughout the country.

The campaign, which will start with the Rabbis in Orthodox Synagogues delivering special sermons during the Passover Holidays, will continue during the whole month of April.
