Californian Rabbi Calls on President Urging World Peace


Representations on behalf of world peace and an appeal for support of the World Court plan were made by Rabbi Rudolph I. Coffee, of Oakland. California, on August 1st, at the White House, where he was granted an audience with President Coolidge.

Rabbi Coffee reminded the President, on the eve of the first anniversary of the death of President Harding that the late President a few days before his death, was to have addressed the San Francisco ministers on behalf of world peace, and to have explained how the religious groups could help in the advancement of peace.

The Californian Rabbi expressed the hope the “the spirit of President Harding for world peace lives in the heart of his successor,” and stated that the religious bodies of the country would co-operate heartily towards world peace.
