Rabbi Calls on Jews to Aid Liberalism

Download PDF for this date

Jews must support liberal movements or perish, Rabbi Abraham L. Feinberg told the Mens’ Club of Temple Judea here tonight.

“Jews must be free to think and to move as they wish,” said the speaker, who pictured Fascism and dictatorship as deadly developments so far as the Jews are concerned.

Criticizing “too much intellectualism,” Rabbi Feinberg advised Jews to settle on farms and place more emphasis on strenuous work and action and less on study and thought.
