Jews Suffer from “iron Curtain” World, Rumanian Chief Rabbi Says

Jews do not want any Iron Curtain because they inevitably suffer when the world is divided, Dr. Moses Rosen, Rumanian Chief Rabbi, told a reception given tonight in his honor by British Chief Rabbi Israel Brodie and the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Rabbi Rosen, making the first visit of a chief rabbi from a Soviet country, said that such visits to Rumania as that of the American rabbinical delegation last year and that of the Swedish Chief Rabbi gave the respective Jewish communities a chance to learn about each other. He expressed the hope that representatives of British Jewry would visit Rumania to meet not only the Jewish spiritual leaders but also “ordinary men and women so as to learn and know about Rumanian Jewry.”
