Download PDF for this date

A call to American rabbis to commemorate during Sabbath services this week the anniversary of the burning of the synagogues in Nazi Germany on November 10,1938, as a token of sympathetic understanding and cooperation toward the refugees in our midst was made today by Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Synagogue Council of America. The message is being sent to members of the American rabbinate by William Rosenwald, president of the National Refugee Service.

In urging American rabbis to observe the anniversary, Dr. Goldstein paid tribute to the efforts the National Refugee Service is making on behalf of the 207,000 Jewish refugees in this country.
