Need Special Order for Jew to Join Jesuits

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Special permission was necessary to be granted by Pope Pius XI in order that Sidnev Judah be admitted into the Jesuit order. According to a report in the Catholic press here, this is the first case where the Jesuits accepted into their order a person of Jewish descent. Judah is the son of Jewish parents living in Kingston, British West Indies.
