Dr. Frankel Misquoted

Download PDF for this date

A regrettable misinterpretation of the remarks of Dr. Lee K. Frankel in a symposium on the state of Jewry 50 years ago and today, sponsored by The Judeans, quoted him as saying that “within the next generation or two, the need for charities will disappear.” What Dr. Frankel did say was that “in the course of the next few decades there will be a lessening of the need for granting material relief.” The misquotation appeared in the Jewish Daily Bulletin of January 14.
