Asks Jewish Tourists to Visit Poland and Russia

Download PDF for this date

In an address tonight in the pupit of Temple Beth El, this city, Mrs. Estelle M. Sternberger of New York City, executive secretary of the National Council of Jewish Women, discussed the conditions confronting the Jew in Eastern Europe, and in the course of her address said:

“We take pride in the millions we give to philanthropies in Eastern Europe. I believe the Jew of America would multiply his gifts a hundredfold if, instead of merely rushing through the pleasure capitals of Europe, he would include Poland and Russia in his route of travel and see, with his own eyes, the anguish and need of our people. His heart would then know the affliction of his brother and sister that cries out to Heaven, on the eve of this approaching Passover, as it has for these many years.”

Mrs. Sternberger was the speaker at the annual meeting of the Texas State Conference of Council Sections, which took place this week.
