While declaring that Communism is making progress among Jewish masses, and expressing satisfaction with the Jewish youth for its anti-religious campaigns, the conference of representatives of the Jewish sections in the Ukraine deplored the weakness of political education in the smaller Jewish towns, a report from Oharkov states.
The conference was of the opinion that the Jewish poor and working classes were still under the influence of “clericalism, chauvinism and reaction”. Communists look with confidence, however towards the future, expecting that time will bring back about a change in the Jewish attitude towards communism.
