MORE THAN $60,000 was raised for the Allied Jewish Campaign when Chief Rabbi Isaac Halevi Herzog of Israel addressed a dinner of orthodox leaders here. He is shown with Abe Kittle, a campaign vice-chairman, left. and Louis Berry, general chairman, right. The Chief Rabbi delighted the overflow throng with his old-fashioned charm, his folksy, old-country Yiddish and his perfect, British-accented English. "Recognize the Jewish nation with all your substance," he urged his audience, "and give more than last year." As a result most announced gifts were increases.
