Memorial services on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Leo N. Levi, distinguished Jewish leader of a generation ago, will be held at the West End Synagogue, 158 West 82nd Street, on Friday evening. Rabbi Nathan Stern, spiritual leader of the congregation, will speak on the life and work of Leo N. Levi.

The memorial services are being sponsored by the Leo N. Levi Memorial association, located at Hot Springs, Ark, established as a memorial to Mr. Levi. A committee of prominent members of the local Jewish community participating in the service includes Edwin Brucks, Mark Eisner, Rabbi H. G. Enelow, Mrs. Samuel Greenfield, Mrs. Rebekah Kohut, Dr. Frank Levander, Lucius N. Littauer, Judge Grover M. Moscowitz, Albert Ottinger, Jefferson Seligman, Rabbi Nathan Stern, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise and Henry Wollman.

The Memorial Hospital was opened in 1914 and occupies a four-story modern fire-proof building. The institution has a capacity of seventy-two and serves those victims of acute articular and infectious diseases who cannot afford to pay.
