Wise Receives Ovation by Allentown Jews and Christians at Address

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Declaring that Hitlerism is the “most terrible revolt against Christianity in centuries,” Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, in an address in the Jewish Community Center here last night, asserted that Hitler-land had usurped the place of the Germany of yesterday and that there is no relation between the two.

Rabbi Wise was given one of the most remarkable ovations ever rendered a lecturer in this city, Jews and Gentiles participating.

Rabbi Wise kept his engagement here in the midst of his sixtieth birthday celebration and it was generally agreed that his visit has helped to create a better feeling between Jews and Gentiles.

Whether it’s local, domestic or foreign, if it’s news about Jewish life you’ll find it in the Jewish Daily Bulletin.
