Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, in a letter issued over the week-end from the offices of the American Zionist Emergency Council, denied that Zionists in this country are supporting a boycott of British-made films.

The Sons of Liberty Boycott Committee, which is supporting the campaign, “has no relationship whatsoever with any of the established and recognized Zionist organizations in this country, nor do its activities have the approval or support of such organizations,” the letter said.
