British Jews Consider It Premature to Send Delegation to Russia

Download PDF for this date

The Anglo-Jewish Association has decided that the “time is not propitious for a visit to the Russian Jewish community by an Anglo-Jewish delegation,” a report readied for presentation to an AJA meeting this week, declares. It is understood that there has been some correspondence on the subject between the AJA and the Foreign Secretary.

An appeal to Socialist parties throughout the world to help the Jews raise before world public opinion the fate of 3,000,000 Jews in the Soviet Union and other Communist countries appears in the current issue of the Bulletin of the Socialist International. Written by Dr. S. Levenberg, British Labor Zionist leader, the appeal notes that the Jews in the Communist countries “suffer from a denial of human rights.” It urges the world Socialist movement to speak out in their behalf.
