Download PDF for this date

Accusing members of a Roumanian-Jewish committee, which has been organized in this country in opposition to the United Roumainian Jews of America of acts that are hurtful to the Roumanian Jewish cause, Leo Wolfson, president of the United Roumanian Jews of America, in an open letter to Saul S. Myers and Solomon Sufrin, leaders of this committee, calls upon them to repudiate this action or else be stamped as “informers” who are “a danger to Jewish communal life and interests.”

Mr. Wolfson accuses a member of this committee of informing the Roumanian legation in Washington, Professor Iorga, Rector of the University of Bucharest, who was recently here, and Roumanian-Christian organizations in this country, that his, Mr. Wolfson’s organization, was hostile to Roumania. He also charges that some members of this committee advised Professor Iorga not to attend the dinner given in his honor by the United Roumanian Jews of America because the latter organization was anti-Roumanian in its spirit and activity. These acts are characterized by Mr. Wolfson as “disloyal to Jewish interests and despicable in themselves.”
