Bbi Wolsey Resigns As Vice-president of the American Council for Judaism

Rabbi Louis Wolsey, one of the founders of the American Council for Judaism, today announced his resignation as vice-president of the organization. He gave no reason for his action.

The Council today sent a cable to the Jewish Agency protesting against the request by the Palestine Office of the Jewish Agency in New York for 1,600 Palestinian imigration certificates, including 1,000 for Zalutzim from the United States.

“Funds of American Jews raised through the United Jewish Appeal come from lionists, anti-Zionists, and non-Zionists for resettlement of the displaced and allegation of suffering. We strongly oppose depriving 1,600, or any number of displaced people in Europe, of immigration certificates in order to make them available for resettlement of American Jewish youth in Palestine,” the cable said.
