Jewish Labor Committee Announces Resignation from American Jewish Conference

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Labor Committee revealed officially today that it has withdrawn from the American Jewish Conference because of the admission to the conference of the Jewish Peoples Fraternal Order, which, the Labor Committee charged, is a Communist organization.

In a pamphlet issued to its members, the labor group stated that the Communists have attempted to demoralize Jewish labor organizations and injure. Jewish interests. It indicated that it was willing to rejoin the conference if the Jewish Peoples Fraternal Order were ousted.
