Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Daily Bulletin presents both sides of the question of the proposed boycott of German goods by Jews, by printing the two major arguments in the debate held last week in Detroit under the auspices of Congregation Shaarey Zedek. Rabbi Leon Fram of Temple Beth El, Detroit, argued for the affirmative on the question “Resolved that the Jews of the world should organize a public boycott of German goods in order to force the German government to rescind its anti-Semitic policy.” Philip Slomovitz, editor of The Detroit Jewish Chronicle, argued for the negative.
