Download PDF for this date

The importance of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in Jewish life was emphasized yesterday by Neville Laski, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, in an address before the Board.

Mr. Laski referred to the value of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency news service in connection with a report on the Jewish situation in Germany presented to the Board of Deputies by Leonard Montefiore, British Jewish elader and head of the Joint Foreign Committee.

As a result of Mr. Montefiore’s report, a number of proposals to strengthen the activities of the Joint Foreign Committee and the Board of Deputies were adopted.

In his report, Mr. Montefiore sharply denounces the elimination of Jews from military service in Germany under the new conscription law, and protests in the name of German and British Jewry against the creation of a Pariah class by the Nazis.
