Syracuse Plans Reception to Honor Schwartzbard

Download PDF for this date

all Jewish reception in honor of Sholom Schwartzbard, slayer of the Ukrainian pogrom leader, Simon Petlura, will be held here Saturday evening at the Madison Junior High School auditorium.

Schwartzbard will speak on Jewish self-denial. Following the Toronto lead, precautions are being taken to prevent any unnecessary disturbances. All local publicity about the reception is confined to Jewish circles. The city as a whole will be ignorant of his presence.
