Z.O.A. President Calls Upon American Jews to Take Oath on Jerusalem Issue

A proclamation calling on the Jews of America to gather together in their communities on a given day within the next four weeks and participate in a mass Biblical oath to stand by Israel in its struggle against the attempt to sever Jerusalem from the Jewish state was issued today by Daniel Frisch, president of the Zionist Organization of America.

“Under the pretext of safeguarding the Holy Shrines, a worldwide movement has been launched to sever the Eternal City from Israel and thus tear out the very heart and soul of the fledgling state,” the proclamation said. “To deprive Israel of Jerusalem would be to cut off the lifeblood of the new state and to undermine the very foundations of Israel, established after 2,000 years of Jewish homelessness.”
