With more than 1,200 leaders of the Greater Los Angeles Jewish community in attendance, at a gala rally, the United Jewish Welfare Fund opened its 1964 drive tonight by raising $2,700,000 toward a quota aggregating $10,000,000. The drive, according to Nathan Cramer, general chairman of the 1964 campaign, will aid a total of 169 agencies and services.

The meeting was opened by Dr. Max W. Bay, newly elected president of the Jewish Federation-Council of Greater Los Angeles. Mr. Cramer, hailing tonight’s drive launching as a “spectacular” beginning, voiced high praise for the 8,000 men and women signed up to participate in the campaign.

A feature of the evening was a demonstration solicitation conducted by Bram Goldsmith, vice-chairman of the campaign, who also heads the business and professions division; and Albert A. Spiegel, chairman of the areas division. Other prominent participants in the program were Mrs. Marvin Hime, head of the Women’s Division; and Joseph N. Mitchell, chairman of the UJFW’s standing committee. Julius Bisno and Martin Ruderman are associate executive directors of the Jewish-Federation-Council and Julius Ratner is campaign director.
