WARBURG, world famous Jewish philanthropist and prominent banker: "I understand that Herzl Congregation is commemo- rating the seventieth birthday of our beloved friend, Cyrus Adler, and I think it is appropriate and timely that people should express their appre- elation to the man who has given the major part of his life unselfishly to fght for the improvement of the living conditions of his co-rellgionists. "Cyrus Adler's philosophy of life is as broad and deep as his know- ledge is profound, and he has made friends in all the many fields in which he has searched for historical docu- ments of human development and relationship. As a student, long High praise from nationally-known Jewish leaders for Rabbi Philip A. Langh and Herzl Congregation, Seattle's only Conservative house of worship, for sponsoring the first celebration in the West of the seventieth birthday of Dr. Cyrus Adler, distinguished scholar, educator and world-famous leader in Israel, came today following observance of "Cyrus Adler Night" at Herzl Synagogue Friday. More than 500 worshippers heard Rabbi Langh extoll Dr. Adler as "an upbuilder of the greatest Jewish community since the days of the Spanish Inquisition." Dr. Adler, Rabbi Langh declared, "belongs with the Jewish immortals for his work in behalf of his brethren in pro- moting Jewish civil and religious rights, in advancing the cause of Jewish education and in devoting his giant's intellect to meeting the prob- lems of Jewry. No man has done more than he--and he has done all this without sensationalism or theatricalism." A highlight of the celebration wag the reading of a resolution by the congregation, congratulating Dr. Adler on having passed his sev- entieth milestone. At conclusion of the reading of the resolution, the entire congregation arose in tribute to Dr. Adler. The services honor- ing Dr. Adler were the third of a series of late Friday night services conducted this season by Rabbi Langh, whose inauguration of Conser- vative services here last year was the signal for a "back-to-the-synagogue" movement. Messages from Jewish leaders follow in part: LOUIS J. MOSS, president, United Synagogue of America, Con- servative congregation governing body: "I am happy to testify" to the esteem in which Dr. Cyrus Adler is held generally by all who know him. His services in behalf of humanity and of Jewry particularly are so well known that a restatement of them becomes necessary. In fact, I sometimes think that Jewry in America leans too heavily upon the shoulders of Dr. Ad-  let, for there seems to be hardly a cause of prominence which does not beat- ::!:: the im rint of his erson'ditv iiiiiiiiiiiiiii{ii::iiiii::{iii ....................................................

SOi, M. STROOCK, director, Jewish Theological Seminary and noted Jewish leader: "I am very happy at the celebration which is being held in honor of the seventieth birthday anniversary of Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of this seminary. Dr. Adler's eminent services to American Juda- ism and indeed to Jews throughout the world have been such that he needs nofurtherencomium. In every field of Jewish life, philanthropic, cultural scholarly and reiigious--he has been in the forefront. His varied interests have brought him to the leadership of the American Jewish Committee and to positions of great influence in the Joint Distribution Committee and the Fewish Agency for Palestine. "The Board of Directors of the Seminary have ahvays felt it a great pri- Alege to have him as president of this Seminary where he is able to impress his personality on the present and future religious teachers of our people. I am happy to hear that you on the Pacific Coast as well as we in the East appreciate his gifts, his energy and his devotion to our people." rations yet to come will bless his memory for that work. "When the Jewish Agency was formed, Dr. Adler's intense love for the Holy Land and his desire to cooperate in its upbuilding impelled him again to take the leadership of the Agency here. He has never swerved from his devotion to that cause. Perhaps his deepest interest in the institutions of Palestine has been in the Hebrew Jewish University of Jerusalem. As amem- ber of the Agency and also of the Advisory Board of the University I can again testify that there has been no call which Dr. Adler was not ready to answer. "Perhaps his 1hOSt conspicuous activity has been with the American Jewish Committee. His time, his thought, his energies and his wise counsel have aiways been freely given to that cause. In the tragic situation of the German-Jews, he has rendered services which are more valuable because Mrs. Warburg Gives $100,000 To Hebrew U. NEW YOP, K (\\;V.N.S.) -The sum of $100,000 as a contribution toward the gencral budget o the Ilebrew University was voted this week at the annual meeting of the executive committee of the American Friends of lhe tlebrew Unixersity, of which Dr. A. S. \\;V. Rosenbach is president. Individuals and communities throughout the country have pledged themselves to cooperate in raisine that sum. A joint committee of the American Jewish Physicians Com- mittee and Hadassah will also under- take to raise $200,000 for a Univer- sity hospital. Among the gifts announced at the meeting were 8100,000 by Mrs. Felix M. Warburg, $2,000 by l)rs. Nathan Ratnoff, Dr. Israel S. Wechsler and Dr. Emanuel Libman, to defray the salaries of three scientists formerly connected with German universities.
