U.S. Jewry Urged to Make Huge Aid Effort for Polish Jews at Labor Parley Here

Resolutions condemning the occupation of Poland, denouncing the Russo-German agreement, calling on American Jews to furnish “colossal material means” to support the Jews in Poland and pledging an unceasing fight for Poland’s liberation were adopted last night by more than 1,000 delegates of Jewish labor groups attending a conference at the Center Hotel called by the Relief Committee for the Jewish Masses in Poland.

Funds are necessary, a resolution on relief declared, to finance emigration of Jewish Socialists and to conduct the battle for a liberated democratic-Socialist Poland.”

Speakers included a Jewish labor delegation from Poland–Emanuel Novogrudski, Jacob Pat and B. Tabatshinsky–and J. Weinberg, chairman of the Relief Committee; Benjamin Stolberg and Abraham Reisin, dean of Yiddish letters.
