Download PDF for this date

The recently established “Free Berlin” radio station, which is operated by a semi-official public corporation, has launched a regular series of Jewish cultural and religious broadcasts.

The opening feature was a recorded talk by Dr. Leo Baeck, 81-year-old dean of Liberal Judaism and formerly Chief Rabbi of Berlin. He was followed on the air by Heinz Galinski, president of the Berlin Community.
