Revisionists Scored at Labor Rally Here

Download PDF for this date

A bitter attack on Zionist Revisionists and proponents of the Biro-Bidjan colonization project was made yesterday by Abraham Cahan, editor of The Forward, in an address before 700 delegates to the New York conference for the Palestine labor campaign at the Hotel Pennsylvania. The conference adopted a $100,000 quota for New York.

Calling the Biro-Bidjan scheme a “bluff” and “a scandalous swindle,” Mr. Cahan declared that Jews cannot find a political home in Soviet Russia.

Others on the speakers’ list were Maurice Finestone, Sholom Asch, Saul Metz and Chaim Greenberg. Joseph Schlossberg presided.
