In accepting the invitation to attend the affair, at which Governor Herbert H. Lehman will also be a guest of honor, Professor Einstein wrote:

“I thank you heartily for your invitation to attend the Chanukah celebration to be held at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. I gladly accept your invitation and earnestly hope that it will be a beautiful demonstration of Jewish solidarity in these critical times.”
