Dr. Nahum Goldmann Denies Charges Made by Dr. Abba Hillel Silver

Dr. Nahum Goldmann, chairman of the administrative committee of the World Jewish Congress and a member of the executive of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, issued a statement here today denying certain charges against him made last week by Dr. Abba Hillel Silver. Dr. Goldmann’s statement reads:

“I see from the papers that Dr. Abba Hillel Silver has tried to drag me into his public controversy with other Zionist leaders here. I refuse, as I always did, to enter into any public controversy with Dr. Silver as I regard the publicity which he is giving to differences of opinion which have to be settled within the councils of the Zionist movement, as irresponsible and harmful to the Zionist cause. I merely wish to state that the various statements concerning me are absolutely incorrect and a distortion of the truth.”
