American Zionist Public Affairs Committee Changes Its Name

Download PDF for this date

The name of the American Zionist Committee for Public Affairs has been changed to American Israel Public Affairs Committee by decision of its executive board, Rabbi Philip S. Bernstein, chairman of the organization, announced today.

The change was made to reflect the fact that the committee is supported by all elements of the American Jewish community rather than Zionists alone. The committee will continue to conduct public action in Washington with a view to strengthening friendship of the U.S. and Israel, and to counteract Arab lobbying against Israel.
