Beginning next Sunday The Jewish Daily Bulletin will add to its galaxy of editorial contributors and columnists the name of Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver of Cleveland, who will bring to his written expressions the force, verve, brilliance and scholarship which distinguish his spoken comments. He will discuss with full freedom current topics in the light of first principles of Judaism.


In this issue there appears the first contribution of Dr. Wolfgang von Weisl, well-known Eastern correspondent, formerly with the Vossische Zeitung, who discusses the problem of the Jewish autonomous state of Biro-Bidjan, in Soviet Russia.


Dr. Hans Kohn, authority and author on problems of international relations, contributes weekly, beginning with this issue, a column on international relations which will appear under the heading of Foreign Affairs.


Also appearing for the first time in this issue is the column entitled Speaking My Mind, by Joseph Leftwich, of London, editor and author, who will hew true to his title, sometimes taking the unpopular side when, and if, the need arises.

R. D. B.

Ralph D. Blumenfeld, Chairman of the Board of the London Daily Express and for thirty years editor-in-chief of that journal, will continue to cable weekly his trenchant views and comments on issues affecting world Jewry, with particular reference to the Nazi persecution of Jews. Mr. Blumenfeld is one of England’s most gifted publicists.
