Frisco Jewish Center Nearing Completion

Download PDF for this date

San Francisco’s new Jewish Community Center will be completed in the next three weeks and a new monument will stand to the progress and earnestness of local Jewry.

No date has yet been set for the dedication, pending the completion of final plans for the intensive program of social, recreational, religious and educational pursuits which will be carried on in the Center.

More than 30 local Jewish organizations, embracing every shade of the Jewish community, have arranged to make joint use of the Center facilities and are working on plans for inaugurating their endeavors with the added facilities of the new building.

The Center has been made possible by $650,000 subscribed several years ago by local Jewry to finance purchase of the site and construction and equipment of the building.

Lloyd Dinkelspiel is temporary chairman of the Center organization while Louis Blumenthal is acting as executive director.
