Ours is the happy privilege "of alleviating the wants of the poor and the needy, visiting and attending the sick, coniing to the rescue of victims of persecution, providing for. pro¬ tecting and assisting the widow and the orphcui on the broadest principles of humanity." THE Jewish people of Columbus and central Ohio are proud of the men in our midst who have dedicated their lives to the advancement of tbe noblest ideals Qf the ages. These men have taught us the real meaning of B'nai B'rith service and by their own exemplary careers have shown us the way to achieve lasting glory. S co-workers with you this humanitarian enterprise, we realize the great responsibility that rests upon your shoulders and pray to God that he lyill bless you in your coming and bless you in your going.
