I^evin will be joined by his fellow officers, general membership and friends of the Congregation to participate in a special ceremony led by Rabbi David Stavsky, in burning of the mortgage of the new beau¬ tiful religious edifice, the Bais Yakov shul, located on Bulen Ave. Beth Jacob Congregation was organized by a handful of Jew¬ ish immigrants at the turn of the century. The traditional Ortho¬ dox synagogue expanded, and quickly carved out an important place for itself in the annals of the Jewish history of Columbus. Many families were quick to join the Congregation, and it flour¬ ished as a center of worship and meeting place for the early im¬ migrants. The cornerstone for their new synagogue on Donald¬ son Ave. was laid in 1907. Under the sagacious and en¬ thusiastic leadership of President Joe Swartz, the Congregation, in 1949, saw the need to build a new sanctuary, in the Driving Park section of Columbus, the then densely Jewish populated area of the city. At the helm ot leadership with Mr, Swarbt was the late revered Rabbi Leopold Greenwald, who in his 32 years as spiritual leader of the Congrregation brought dig¬ nity and scholarship to the syna¬ gogue and its membership. The noble rabbt whose erudition, wit and warm smile won the admira¬ tion ard friendship of the entire Jewish community, gave selflessly to the erection of the new sanc¬ tuary on Bulen Ave. The Building Fund committee, (eoBUaaed ob iwc* i> DE MILLE TO ENHANCE EG"rPTIAN OBELISK New York—(AJP)—^The' famous Egyptian Obelisk, known as "Cleopatra's Needle," which was placed in Central Park in the year 1881 and whose origin goes back to the time of Moses, will soon be graced by a new red granite base and plaques giving an exact trans¬ lation of the hieroglyphics containing the names of Pharaohs Ramases Et, Thothmes in and Osarkon I, To this date the public has had no knowledge of what the hieroglyphics said.
