"The Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society is urgently
in need of friends to carry on its beneficent labors. It has
no income other than that which is voluntarily contributed
from time to time by generous and kind-hearted people. It has,
as yet, no endowment fund. Voluntary contributions and
legacies are solicited.
The approximate expenses for 1913, $70,000."
The Society maintains a Free Kitchen, which is probably the
only one of its kind in the country. "Whoever is hungry may
come and partake thereof." No lines are drawn between race,
color and creed, and it is given to the recipient in such a
way as not to wound his feelings.
is due to this work that it is able to truthfully claim that
there are few if any Jews to be found in the "Bread Line" on
Broadway or the Bowery.
