More than fifty per cent. of a quota of $50,000, established by the Bronx Branch of the United Jewish Appeal, is expected to be received by the Bronx drive when it receives its first impetus at a dinner to be held in the Chateau De Luxe, 671 Prospect avenue, on May 6, officials said.

About $2,000 has already been pledged as a result of appeals made by the local rabbinate during Passover sermons in twenty-five synagogues, according to Meyer Goldberg, director of the campaign. Remaining congregations in the brought will be approached during the Shevuoth holidays.

Three hundred prominent jurists, public officials, leaders in Jewry, philanthropists and rabbis are serving on the committee for the dinner.

David Pasmantier is chairman of the dinner committee, Magistrate Bernard Mogilesky is associate chairman, Maurice Shapiro is treasurer and Louis M. Aron is secretary.
