Linen to help fit out the new Congress House, center for German-Jewish refugees, was obtained last night through a shower held by the Brooklyn division of the Women’s Association of the American Jewish Congress.
Mrs. Shephen S. Wise, who recently returned from a tour of Europe, said one of the most important problems facing American Jews is that of aiding in the reorientation of German refugees who come to this country.
Many persons, she said, who are temporary refugees in various countries in Europe will come to the United States insofar as immigration laws permit. Congress House, she pointed out, will serve as a center for these refugees where they can become accustomed to the new country. Congress House will be opened by the end of September, she said.
