Download PDF for this date

A recommendation that a world orthodox Jewish congress in Jerusalem be organized with the purpose of bringing American-Palestinian relations into closer kinship, was made by Rabbi Eliasar Silver, of Cincinnati, at a convention of the Agudath Harabonim, of which he is the president, held here Monday.

He also urged that a delegation of one hundred rabbis be sent to Jerusalem to study conditions there. He also pleaded for a stronger boycott against German made products.
