U.S. Rabbis Join in Denouncing Persecution of Buddhists in Vietnam

Three American rabbis joined today with eight Protestant clergymen and a Buddhist in a denunciation of the South Vietnam Government for its religious persecution of the country’s Buddhists.

Rabbis Julius Mark, Edward Klein and Judah Cahn were among the signatures of a full-page advertisement in the New York Times which reproduced a photograph of a Buddhist priest who committed suicide by fire as a protest against the Government’s policies.
