Abstract

A plaque at JCRS that says, '' In appreciation of their efforts in behalf of this building this tablet is dedicated to, Max D. Neusteter, Denver; Oscar Abel, New York; J.C. Berkson, New York; Samuel Goldberg, New York; John C. Mack, New York; Samuel Moskowitz, New York; and Louis Stern, Denver, 1921.'' These men gave efforts to help construct one of the buildings on the campus of the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society (JCRS). The JCRS was a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients that was founded in 1904 by a group of immigrant Jewish workingmen along with the support of several leading physicians and rabbis in Denver, Colorado. The sanatorium was located on West Colfax Avenue just outside of Denver.
