A call to member congregations of the United Synagogue of America, central body of the Conservative synagogues, to support the 10-year, $60,000,000 campaign in behalf of the Jewish Theological Seminary, United Synagogue and Rabbinical Assembly of America, was voiced here today at the concluding session of a four-day session of the Seminary’s national planning commission.

The campaign, which will be carried into Jewish communities in this country and Canada, will be the largest fund raising endeavor ever undertaken for any theological seminary, according to Daniel G. Ross, chairman of the parley and of the planning commission. The campaign will include a building fund to house expanded seminary needs and an endowment fund of $17,000,000 to meet the maintenance costs of the new buildings.
