Download PDF for this date

Today on the morrow of the closing of the world Jewish conference which voted for the summoning of a world Jewish congress in the summer of 1934, the newly elected executive of twenty announced that a program to popularize the congress would be launched immediately.

The propaganda will seek to find adherents of the congress idea both in Jewish and non-Jewish circles, it was stated.

Actual preparations for general elections for deputies to the congress will be inaugurated in October, it is said.

The Executive, which will direct the work, will seek to establish a Congress Committee in every country where Jews live tect American Jewry from economic and social discrimination?”
