Download PDF for this date

Rabbi Julius Mark of the Vine Street Temple, who returned recently from Germany, declared that the two weeks he spent in Germany this summer were the “unhappiest of my life.”

Rabbi Markel declared that the plight of the Jews was very sad and that German Jews felt that they were in a “trap.” He described the dramatic scene that occurred when Sherwood Eddy, noted American liberal, dared to criticize the Nazis in a speech delivered in Berlin, on which occasion Rabbi Mark was present.
