Bigotry in United States Discussed at Hebrew Union College Anniversary Conference

A discussion of the “forces subversive to American democracy,” featured today’s session of the three-day ” Conference on Judaism and Democracy,” which is being held to mark the 70th anniversary of the Hebrew Union Collage. Principal speakers were Congressman Emanuel Celler, Rabbi J.X. Cohen and Sigund Livingston.

“The program of bigotry is unmistakably allied to the problem of unemployment,” Rep. Celler said. “If we keep that in mind we will work together for a better country and a better world. Freedom from want and freedom from fear go hand in hand. Here at least we have a concrete program. As citizens and voters, you alone can supply the answer.”
