Jewish Communist Leaders Said to Be Conspiring with Rabbis

Download PDF for this date

Jewish Communist leaders of White Russia were today officially accused of conspiring with the Minsk rabbis against the interests of the Communist Party. The accusation is contained in an official declaration which the secretary of the Communist Party in White Russia sent to Moscow to the sixteenth All-Soviet conference of the Communist Party.

Speaking of “national chauvinism” which is reported of late to have spread among the Jewish Communists in White Russia the declaration says that the synagogue was the center for chauvinistic activities among the Jewish working elements of White Russia. The Jewish Nationalists and “national opportunists” conducted their work, it is said, under the slogan of “draw the Jews into Socialism” and thus “crippled the class line activities among the Jewish artisans and the cooperative movement”.
