Deutsch Explains His Absence at Meeting

Download PDF for this date

Mrs. David E. Goldfarb, president of the Federation of Jewish Women’s Organizations, yesterday received a communication from Bernard S. Deutsch, Aldermanic president and president of the American Jewish Congress, explaining the reason for his failure to attend the fourteenth annual convention of the Federation held Monday at the Astor.

Mrs. Goldfarb would not divulge its contents but told The Bulletin that Mr. Deutsch had been misinformed regarding the stand on the boycott taken by the Federation at its January 17 meeting, when the resolution was tabled.

Mr. Deutsch was led to believe that the Federation had turned thumbs down on supporting the boycott of German products.
