Download PDF for this date

S. Vernon McCasland, Professor of Religion at Goucher College, declares in the Baltimore Evening Sun that Jews should “repudiate the Zionist termites who, by their romantic dreams about a Jewish nation, are undermining the security which Jews now enjoy.” Prof. McCasland had criticized the Zionist movement in an article in the Sun on May 23. A reply by Rabbi Edward L. Israel was published on June 1. Prof. McCasland’s present article, offered in rebuttal, appeared on June 9.
