Anglo-jewish Association to Continue Its Work Among Jews in Aden

Download PDF for this date

The Anglo-Jewish Association will continue its educational work in Aden and similar activities in Europe, R.N. Carvalho, president, told a meeting of the AJA Council tonight. He stressed that these aspects of AJA function are practical, desirable and make “a real contribution to the survival of Jewish life.”

Mr. Carvalho reported that there was no evidence that the recent rioting in Aden, British protectorate on the Arabian peninsula, was directed at Jews. It was specifically a nationalist turmoil, he said. He revealed that in talks with senior Colonial Office officials he had been given “every assurance of its (the government’s) determination” to protect all minorities in Aden.

In another report to the Council, it was revealed that the AJA, the Alliance Israelite Universelle and the American Jewish Committee had agreed to hold a meeting early next year on the status of Jews in Eastern European countries and in the Moslem states. The AJA is also in receipt of a report from the Council of Christians and Jews on the present status of Jews in Germany.
