About 5,000 school children received a lesson in philanthropy, given under the auspices of the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies, which is about to complete its drive to raise the sum of $4,200,000, yesterday morning. The youngsters gathered in the old Roxy Theatre and listened to conversational addresses delivered on the “Religious Aspect of Giving.”

Arranged by the Junior Federation with the cooperation of the Jewish Education Association, the children witnessed a pageant comprising four tableaux, each depicting the charitable practices of succeeding periods in Jewish history. Thirty-five centuries of charitable observance were staged.

Magistrate Jonah J. Goldstein, mentor, was one of the speakers. A moving picture was presented.
