Download PDF for this date

Denial that the Union of American Hebrew Congregations had endorsed the newly organized "Americans for Haganah" was issued today by Dr. Maurice N. Eisendrath, president of the U.A.H.C., in a letter to Mr. Abraham Feinberg, president of the "Americans for Haganah."

In his letter, Dr. Eisendrath pointed out that the Union of American Hebrew Congregations had adopted "a stand of neutrality on Zionism, leaving any decisions to be made on this subject to the constituent congregations and individuals thereof."
