Download PDF for this date

A special meeting of the National Executive Committee of the American Jewish Congress will be held this afternoon, Sunday, at 1:30 o’clock, at the Hotel Commodore. Signaling a nation-wide campaign to enlist participation of the Jewish masses in the work of preserving their rights and improving their status, it is expected that the meeting will be attended by delegates from all over the country.

The meeting’s purpose is to organize the country for national democratic elections to the American Jewish Congress. Reports on the deliberations of the Geneva Conference, where a World Jewish Congres## in 1935 was decided upon, will be presented by leaders of the American delegation. The international Jewish scene will be described by Dr. Stephen S. Wise, honorary president of the American Jewish Congress, and by Professor Horace M. Kallen, both of whom were delegates to the Geneva Jewish Conference.

Bernard S. Deutsch, president of the American Jewish Congress and president of the New York Board of Aldermen, will discuss conditions in the United States in relation to the forthcoming national elections.

Other speakers will be Dr. Samuel Margoshes, editor of the Day, Nathan D. Perlman, Dr. Joseph Tennenbaum and Abraham I. Spero.

The afternoon session will be preceded by a closed session beginning at 10 o’clock in the morning which will be devoted to a discussion of the extension of the boycott against German merchandise and services.
