Rabbi Urges United Front Among Jews

Download PDF for this date

Declaring that “the conflict between the Mizrachi and the left wing Zionist (Poale Zion) was not one of hate but one of love,” Rabbi Wolf Gold, president of the Mizrachi Organization of America, advocated a united Jewish front at a dinner given in his honor by local Mizrachi groups at the Jewish Community Building.

He told his listeners that the party conflicts in Palestine “will seen cease, it is only a matter of time.”

Rabbi Gold assailed the Yiddish press of the United States for “not showing the Mizrachi-Poale Zion situation in its true light.” He spoke of a conference, which is being arranged in Palestine next year, of all orthodox groups, for the purpose of forming a “united orthodoxy.” The Agudath Israel will be included in this conference, Rabbi Gold said.

Other speakers were Rabbi Joshua S. Zambrowsky, Chief Rabbi of the Buffalo Council on Jewish Congregations and a member of the National Executive of the Mizrachi Organization; Rabbi Gordon Kaprow; Rabbi Harry Silverstone; Mrs. Ruth Orenstein, president of the local Mizrachi Women’s Organization; Irving Haber, president of the Mizrachi Youth of Buffalo, and Sidney Pleskin, president, of B’nai Akiba, a division of Mizrachi Youth. Samuel Gordon presided. Several hundred persons attended.
