Jewish Educational Groups Appeal Against Showing of Yiddish Talkies in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

Appeals to the Jewish populace of Palestine not to attend the Yiddish talking pictures which are expected to be shown here shortly have been issued by the education department of the Jewish Agency, by the executive of the Jewish National Council and by the executive of the Jewish Teachers Organization. The education department of the Jewish Agency argues that while the talking pictures in other languages are also harmful, those in Yiddish are more so because of the propaganda element and the competition with Hebrew.
