Download PDF for this date

Jack D. Weiler, real estate leader and philanthropist, was honored yesterday on his 65th birthday by 200 friends and associates at the headquarters of the United Jewish Appeal of Greater New York. Mr. Weiler has held top leadership posts in the organization for more than two decades and is honorary chairman of its trustees and a chairman of the current drive for the Israel Emergency Fund.

William Rosenwald, who shares the Emergency Fund chairmanship with Mr. Weiler, hailed his achievements as a UJA leader and presented him with an Atoms clock, reputedly the nearest device to a perpetual motion machine. Edward M. Warburg, honorary chairman of the Joint Distribution Committee, also made a presentation to Mr. Weiler, who heads the JDC National Council. The celebration of the birthday took place during a pause in the telephone solicitations for the IEF and the general UJA drive.
