See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

New York’s Jewish community today dedicated a memorial to its members whose concern for Jewish survival has been enduringly expressed by bequests they left under the Legacy Development Program of the United Jewish Appeal of Greater New York or by special donations made to the program by their survivors. Leading the dedication ceremony were Rabbi Edward T. Sandrow, president of the New York Board of Rabbis, and Jack D. Weiler, a chairman of New York UJA’s Trustees. Two hundred relatives of those memorialized and leaders of the Jewish community attended the unveiling of a Wall of Remembrance and Books of Remembrance in the headquarters of the United Jewish Appeal of Greater New York.
