Pittsburgh Zionists Say Brandeis Memo Will Not Aid United Front

Download PDF for this date

Endorsement of the campaign of American Zionists for a united front and the belief that the proposal of Justice Brandeis would not further that aim was contained in a resolution adopted at the pre-Cleveland convention conference of Zionist Region No. 5, comprising delegates from Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and West Virginia, held in the Y. M. H. A. here.

The text of the resolution adopted is as follows:

“We endorse the steps taken by the administrative committee of the Zionist Organization of America, aiming to unite all factions in the Zionist movement in America through the creation of a consolidated National Zionist administration, and especially endorse its action to that end in sending a delegation to consider this matter with Mr. Justice Brandeis.

“The conference places on record its judgment that the proposal made by Mr. Justice Brandeis would not lead to the establishment of the desired united front, nor the creation of harmony and cooperation in Zionist ranks, and therefore cannot be taken as a basis for action at the forthcoming Cleveland Zionist convention. We urge, however, the continuance of efforts to establish a united front which is so urgently needed.”
