Rubinow Warns of Nazi ‘poison’

Download PDF for this date

Dr. I. M. Rubinow, international secretary of B’nai B’rith, warned hearers at the Temple Brith Kodesh here that “poison from Germany has found some fertile soil in this country,” and that while Jews still had many good friends they must not depend on these alone.

When he came to this country forty years ago, Dr. Rubinow pointed out, he entered Columbia University and was “welcomed by the janitor first, finally by the president, Seth Low, because I was a refugee from religious persecution.” He wondered, he said, if the same condition would prevail today.

Dr. Rubinow, of Washington, accompanied by Senator Alfred M. Cohen, international president of B’nai B’rith, of Cincinnati, came here in the interests of a campaign being conducted by the local council.
