Jewish Congress Lauds Eisenhower; Calls for White House Parley

The American Jewish Congress today lauded President Eisenhower’s prompt condemnation of the Atlanta synagogue bombing. At the same time it urged the President to call a national White House conference of leaders of religion, education, business and labor “to rally the American people against racial and religious hatred.”

Rabbi Joachim Prinz, president of the American Jewish Congress, in his telegram to President Eisenhower also urged the President to issue a Proclamation “spelling out for every American to understand our country’s traditional abhorrence of the resort to violence and of incitement to racial and religious hatred.”
