Members of the board of trustees of the Jewish Centers Association, constituent agency of the Federation of Jewish Welfare Organization, will inspect the new Jewish Community Center here Saturday afternoon. A reception will be held in the newly-completed building.

The inspection meeting, called by Morris Sichel, president of the board, will be a preliminary to the formal dedication, which will take place in the Fall.

The Center consists of administration offices, ten meeting rooms, an auditorium, kitchens, craft rooms and lounge. A playground, now being constructed, will contain facilities for croquet, handball, horseshoe pitching, basketball and tennis.

Sixty clubs and organizations, with about 1,000 membership, representing all phases of Jewish life in the city, including athletic, cultural, philanthropic, religious and Zionist activities, will meet in the new Center building. A house committee is being formed to acquaint local residents with the activities of the Center.

The Jewish Centers Association, affiliated with the Community Chest, is headed by Morris Sichel, president; Harry Scheinman, vice-president; I. H. Prinzmetal, secretary, and J. L. Nathan, treasurer. Jehudah M. Cohen is executive director. The Association also maintains the Jewish Neighborhood House.
