Canadian Jewish Congress to Meet in October

Download PDF for this date

The All-Canadian Jewish Conference which is assembled here is preparing to take action on the momentous problems of Jews in Germany. A committee to study the advisability of declaring a boycott on German goods has been appointed, and they are expected to shortly advocate measures of reprisal against persecution in Germany. A Dominion-wide drive for relief funds for German-Jewish refugees is in the immediate offing.

It was decided that the Canadian Jewish Congress will convene in Montreal on October 21. Popular democratic elections will be held not later than October 1. A. J. Freiman, president of the Zionist Organization of Canada, was elected honorary president of the conference.
