Download PDF for this date

Plans for intensifying anti-defamation activities on the Pacific slope will be considered at the coming annual convention of District Grand Lodge No. 4 of the B’nai B’rith, to be held in Vancouver, B.C., July 3, 4 and 5.

At the same time it was announced that at the request of the B’nai B’rith general committee, Rabbi Max J. Merritt, in charge of the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation at the University of California, and Prof. Paul Radin of the same university, are compiling the speakers’ manual which the B’nai B’rith is using in its new antidefamation program.

This book will be sent to lodges of the order throughout the West for the use of speakers working under the direction of a newly formed speakers’ bureau. The purpose of this bureau is to send speakers throughout the West to refute defamatory stories circulated regarding the Jewish people and to tell the true facts about Jewish culture, integrity, and achievement.
