See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The plan of the American Ort to finance the sending of tools to relatives of American Jews in Europe will be presented at a dinner to be held May 25th at the Biltmore Hotel.

Eastern European Jews are anxious to be relieved of the need of asking for continuous help from the relatives here; and the relatives here find it difficult to meet the cry for aid.

American Ort realizes that the Jews in America are unable to pay for the tools at one time, and for that reason has devised a plan to finance the sending of tools to relatives in Europe, extending credit to American Jews, a statement from the Ort headquarters announcing the dinner declares.

A committee with Nathan Straus as honorary chairman and Dr. Henry Moskewitz as chairman of the Dinner Committee is sponsoring this dinner. Among those on the Committee are: David Bressler, Judge Louis Brodsky, Congressman Emanuel Celler, Congressman William W. Cohen, Judge Albert Cohen, Bernard Edelhertz, Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Gibbs, William P. Goldman Jonah J. Goldstein, Judge Gustav Hartman. Max L. Hollander, Rabbi Nathan Krass, Justice Edward Lazansky of the Appellate Division, Adolph Lewisohn, Federal Judge Julian W. Mack, Mrs. Henry Moskowitz, Supreme Court Justice Mitchell May, Judge Eli Neuman, Judge Algernon I. Nova. Nathan Perlman, Judge Otto A. Rosalsky, Reuben Sadowsky, David Shapiro, Judge Bernard Shientag, Jacob Sperber, Nathan Straus, Jr., B. C. Vladeck, Benjamin Winter and Rabbi Stephen S. Wise.

The speakers for the evening will be Colonel Herbert Lehman, chairman of the Committee of Reconstruction of the Joint Distribution Committee, David A. Brown, chairman of the United Jewish Campaign, Dr. Henry Moskowitz, Judge Jacob Panken and Dr. Lvovitch, Europcan Representative of the Ort.
