B’rith Sholom Convention Pledges Aid to President Roosevelt’s War Program

Terming President Roosevelt “the champion of the rights of minority peoples throughout the world,” the independent order of B’rith Sholom last night adopted a resolution pledging its members and resources to his guidance in the nation’s crisis. The fraternal organization is meeting at the Ritz Carlton Hotel here in its thirty-seventh annual convention.

Other resolutions called on the members to support the USO; to foster the aims of the American Jewish Congress for the advancement of humane and Jewish causes; to give aid to the Jewish National Fund, the agency for acquisition and reclamation of land in Palestine, and to intensify religious and educational activities among American Jewry.
