American Council for Judaism Says Demonstration Did Not Represent All U.S. Jews

Lessing J. Rosenwald, president of the American Council for Judaism, charged last night that “an attempt is being made by the holding of mass meetings and other propaganda devices to foster the erromeous impression that all American Jews are united in support of the Zionist plan to establish Jews as a nation and to make Palestine a Jewish Commonwealth.”

“This is simply not true,” he declared. “No one possesses the authority or the right to speak in the name of all Americans of Jewish faith. In behalf of the American Council for Judaism, an organization of Americans of Jewish faith who oppose Jewish nationalists, refuse to participate in a political organization of Jews, and oppose the creation of a Jewish state, we call attention to the divergence of opinion among Jews on this subject.”
