Appeal to Lehman for United Jewry

Download PDF for this date

Governor Herbert H. Lehman of New York will be asked to use his good offices to reconcile the leaders of the American Jewish Committee, the American Jewish Congress and the B’nai B’rith, and persuade them to combine for united action in connection with the German Jewish situation.

Dr. Jacob Billikopf, noted Philadelphia social worker, who has been in Los Angeles on behalf of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, will carry to Governor Lehman a letter from representative Los Angeles Jewish leaders asking him to act in the matter. He will also discuss the sentiment of Western Jewry with Governor Lehman.

The decision to appeal to the New York Governor was reached at a conference of representatives of Jewish organizations here which recently adopted resolutions urging the national Jewish leaders to unite on a common plan of action to aid the Jews of Germany.
