Urges Education in Fight on Bias

Mrs. Rebekah Kohut, president of the World Organization of Jewish Women, in a statement issued yesterday in connection with the membership drive of the National Council of Jewish Women, called for a program of education to combat race prejudice. She is the chairman of the membership committee of the Council.

Pointing to the German situation, Mrs. Kohut declared, “It is definitely a part of our job to consider those who have been caught in that stream of hatred and intolerance and also to pause and think about ourselves as Jews in a country where the ogre of anti-Semitism has already begun to raise its head.”

She warned that Jews have lived too long under a delusion of security and urged that Judaism be made “a very part of our lives.”
