Download PDF for this date

Calling upon Christians to “rebuke all anti-Semitism,” the General Synod of the Reformed Church in America was on record today with an appeal for a united Christian-Jewish fight on anti-Jewish prejudice. A resolution, adopted at yesterday’s session of the Synod, said in part “The failure of the church to reconcile the Jew has behind it a record of misunderstanding, intolerance and spiritual malpractice that has been unequaled in dealing with any other people. Even America is not free from the blight of anti-Jewish prejudice. Both Jew and Gentile are responsible for existing conditions and both must cooperate for their betterment. Christians must rebuke all anti-Semitism.”
