Baron Rothschild Appeals to U.S. Jewry for Aid to North African Jews

Baron Guy de Rothschild, president of the Fonds Social Juif Unifie, the central fund-raising body of French Jewry, has called on the world Jewish communities, especially those in the United States, to help French Jews carry the burden of aiding the North African Jews in this country.

Addressing the FSJU’s general assembly here, Baron de Rothschild pointed out that 250,000 North African Jews have emigrated to France. He reminded world Jewry that the need for aid to the North African Jews is a common responsibility.
