Download PDF for this date

Leaders of British Jewry, in meetings with the overseas delegation of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds during its visit here, expressed great interest in American methods of raising and distributing funds through united campaigns and central community organizations.

The American mission, headed by Irving Kane, of Cleveland, president of the CJFWF, met with leaders of the major Anglo-Jewish organizations for a general discussion of mutual problems. The American group also visited the headquarters of the Jewish Board of Guardians and the Otto Schiff home for elderly refugees from nazism to inspect health and welfare services here. As a result of these meetings, machinery for continued cooperation and exchange of ideas and information was established. The Anglo-Jewish organization heads were also invited to attend the CJFWF General Assembly in Dallas, next November.
