Council for Judaism Tells Presidential Candidates No Group Can Speak for All U.S. Jews

Lessing J. Rosenwald, president of the American Council for Judaism, in a message to four Presidential candidates, asserted today that “no organization of Jews and no individual Jew can speak for all Jews in the United States on the Bernadotte plan, or on any other issue.”

Rosenwald declared that “despite the slander of anti-Semites and others that there is a so-called ‘Jewish’ vote we affirm that Americans of Jewish faith, like all other patriotic Americans, cast their ballots in accordance with their broad political and economic interests and not on the basis of any single or narrow sectarian issue.”
