A graphic description of Jewish life and the spirit in England was given by Phineas Horowitz, vice-president of the British Zionist Federation and chairman of the Angle-Palestine Club, in a broadcast for British War Relief over Station WEVD last night.

The Jews in London’s East End, he said, were at no time panicky, despite the heavy air raids, and their confidence in British victory has remained unshaken. The common enemy has knit all elements in England closely together and one cannot envision a division arising in the future, he said.
