Bishop William T. Manning declared “I am in deepest sympathy with the aims and ideals of this work. I recall the Cathedral meeting of St. John because of the intense gratification and thankfulness I felt after that meeting. Since then I have received many most touching letters from all parts of the United States and Europe. At this time the plans for the installation in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine of the Menorah presented by Adolph S. Ochs, are being made, and for the first time in the history of Christian cathedrals the light from a Menorah will be shed within its portals. We are living in an age of human fellowship. The treatment of our fellows fifty years ago on the humane basis of today would have been impossible.”

Father Edward F. Leonard pointed to the interest of Cardinal Hayes and the Catholic clergy. “In this we should have common sense, a streak of good humor so that we may be enabled to combat real danger which is ignorance.”

Dr. Krass said that “if priests, ministers and rabbis would exchange pulpits not for missionary purposes and preach the gospel of tolerance, the understanding of each community would be brought home the better.”

Declaring that the efforts toward better understanding had his heartiest approval, Will Hays said: “My earliest youth was spent in association with Jewish children. As an infant I was nursed by a Jewish woman, I know the Jew, I appreciate his character, and in the creation of American ideals we have drawn greatly from Jewish sources and inspirations. I know that we can only succeed if we understand each other. Religious tolerance is the principal tenet of my religion. I regard religion as the one essential industry in this world.”
