Download PDF for this date

Zionist leaders, including Dr. Nahum Goldmann, chairman of the administrative committee of the World Jewish Congress, and Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Jewish National Fund in the United States, were among those participating in a broadcast from here to the Jewish Anti-Fascist Rally held in Moscow yesterday. The broadcast, which was beamed to Moscow by the National Broadcasting System, was arranged by the Jewish Council for Russian War Relief Inc.

Dr. Goldmann, who was the first speaker, declared that it was a great moment in the life of American and world Jewry to have the opportunity to speak to Russian Jewry and resume the contact which was interrupted for so many years. He stated: “Fighting Soviet Russia shows how serious she was in her policy of collective security, and how determined she was in doing her share in putting an end to international anarchy and barbarism. A new and better future for the world is being built today primarily on the battlegrounds of Soviet Russia.”
