Download PDF for this date

President Truman today sent a message of greetings to the Farband-Labor Zionist Order on the occasion of the organization’s 40th anniversary which is now being celebrated throughout the country. The message, addressed to Louis Segal, general secretary of the Order, which numbers more than 30,000 members in 110 communities, reads:

“For 40 years, your organization has worked devotedly in support of democratic causes. The struggle of freedom against tyranny is one that never ends. The forces of despotism are never wholly conquered but rise anew to challenge each generation. Democracy must be continuously nourished and strengthened by work and by faith. You have my best wishes for a successful meeting and an inspiring rededication to the struggle for freedom and justice against communism and oppression. “
