“The recurrence of Rosh-Hashona, the Jewish New Year, which this year falls on September 11th, is always a reminder of the debt which the modern world owes to the Jewish people and their wonderful national culture. The occasion is one of significance not merely to the people of the Jewish faith and race, but to all who have been the inheritors of some part in the splendid estate of leadership spirituality, and the service which they have given to the world for the common advantage.

(signed) Calvin Coolidge”.

NOTE: It is suggested that the Jewish weeklies print this message in their issues of September 7.
