Share: Jewish Relief Campaign
One of the famous posters asking the Jewish community to raise money for those Jews who were less fortunate. The outbreak of WWI necessitated urgent monetary relief for both Europe and Palestine. Burke's poster for the Jewish Relief Campaign that began in 1914 is one of the most sought-after posters ever created by a Jewish organization in America. The poster employs an allegorical figure - a serene benefactor meant to symbolize America - feeding a refugee family at dawn, with the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline in the distance.
