Editor, The Jewish Daily Bulletin:

I read with pleasure the article from the “Juedische Rundschau” of Berlin which in five columns of your paper practically says what I put in one paragraph of the statement which I recently gave you.

I believe that the Jewish Agency may be made the instrumentality for the expression of Jewish unity and for the concentration of Jewish energies for solving many problems of Jewish life.

I note that the article speaks of obsolete methods. It is time indeed to sweep them away.

I find only one flaw in the article—when it speaks of the non-nationalists being out of the picture. Let me say that the non-nationalists are very much in the picture. They belong to the Jewish people. The Jewish people transcends the distinction of nationalists and non-nationalists. That is what the Agency is to express. in London I said at a meeting of the Administrative Committee of the Jewish Agency that by the hand of the practical work of building up Jewish Palestine, Jews of differing views may be led more and more to Jewish unity.

Very truly yours,

Rabbi Samuel Schulman.
