Download PDF for this date

Judge Simon H. Rifkind, Zionist Organization of America leader and former advisor on Jewish affairs to AMG in Germany, declared at a dinner last night tendered in honor of Edward J. Flynn, Democratic leader of the Bronx, N.Y., that “American Zionists are now, always have been and ever will be loyal Americans.”

The judge added that “American Zionists owe no allegiance to the state of Israel. Because we love America and cherish it as our home, we desire to secure the blessings of a home for our fellow Jews everywhere.” Other speakers who paid tribute to Mr. Flynn for his support of the Zionist cause included Daniel Frisch, Z.O.A. president.
