A conference of Jewish organizations affiliated with the American Jewish congress and Jewish labor committee, held at the hotel Astor this afternoon under the sponsorship of the Joint Boycott council and attended by about 900 persons, adopted a resolution rejecting “categorically and finally any proposal which would make of our tortured brethren agents for the promotion of Nazi export dumping and thus provide foreign exchange for a regime which is today stooping to the depths of a Hugh international Kidnaping racket.” speakers included Frank P. Walsh, chairman of the New York power commission; ex-justice Jeremiah T. Mahoney, Dean E. George Payne of New York university school of education; and Dr. Joseph Tenenbaim, chairman of the boycott council.
