B’nai B’rith Gives $1,000 to Finnish Relief Fund

B’nai B’rith, international Jewish fraternal order, today announced a $1,000 contribution from its Emergency Relief Fund to the Finnish Relief Fund, Inc.

Henry Monsky, president of B’nai B’rith, stated: “The violation of Finland is another act in the tragedy being written by the Nazi-Fascist-Communist dictator-ships, a tragedy in which the Jews in Germany were cast as the first victims. As a concrete token of its sympathy with and desire to be of assistance to the suffering Finnish non-combatant victims of aggression, B’nai B’rith, representing a cross section of the American Jewish community, is contributing $1,000 to the Finnish Relief Fund, Inc., for the purchase and shipment of food, clothing and medical relief supplies to Finland.”
