AJC Headquarters
Named for Daroff

PHILADELPHIA, (JTA ) —
Friends of Samuel H. Daroff,
noted Jewish community leader,
have purchased a midtown build-
ing which will serve as head-
quarters of the Delaware Valley
Council of the American Jewish
Congress here, and will be named
"Samuel H. Daroff Congress
House."
Theodore R. Mann, president
of the Congress council, in mak-
ing the announcement, said that
the new headquarters will honor
not only Samuel H. Daroff but
also the Daroff family, "espe-
cially his two brothers, Joseph
and Michael, both giants in
philanthropic and communal
activities." A plaque to be un-
veiled in the building will pay
tribute to the memory of the
parents of the Daroff brothers,
the late Harry and Ethel Daroff.
Dedication exercises will be
held at the new AJC headquar-
ters on Jan. 24. Among digni-
taries scheduled to participate
in the event will be Governor
William W. Scranton; Mayor
James H. J. Tate, City Council
president Paul D'Ortona and
Dr. Joachim Prinz, national
president of the American Jew-
ish Congress.
