Lipsky Attacks Revisionists and Brith Shalom; Appeals for Support of Weizmann

Terming the Zionist Revisionists “demagogues,” Louis Lipsky, former president of the Zionist Organization of America and now honorary vice-president, launched an attack on both the Revisionists and the Brith Shalom Society of Palestine at a banquet given in his honor here last night by the Cleveland Zionist district.

Rabbi Harry Davidowitz of the Jewish Center, who was toastmaster, installed the newly-elected officers of the district headed by George J. Klein as president.

Cautioning against the Revisionists who by their attack on the British government “believe they can achieve the Zionist ideals,” Mr. Lipsky said these ideals can be achieved only by “the sound and liberal policy of Dr. Weizmann which has brought tens of thousands of Jews to Palestine and built up Palestine of today which showed its capacity for defending itself against any attack.”

Mr. Lipsky also criticized the Brith Shalom and appealed for the election of delegates to the forthcoming 17th World Zionist Congress that would represent Dr. Weizmann’s policies.
