Download PDF for this date

The united front achieved by the Jewish organizations of this city found expression last night when over a thousand members of the Lynn Jewish community crowded Odd Fellows Hall in a meeting marking the union of the forty Jewish organizations of the city. The meeting opened the joint campaign for German-Jewish relief, Palestine, the HIAS and the American Jewish Congress.

Abraham Goldberg of New York was the principal speaker at the meeting. He pointed out that contrary to Nazi propaganda, Jews are persecuted in Germany not because of inferiority but because of their superior achievements. Hon. Michael Zack presided.
