Leaders of all faiths rallied in support of the Red Cross drive to raise $10,000,000 for war-ravaged Europe today, with Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver of Cleveland taking the lead on behalf of American Jews.

Rabbi Silver-co-chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, declared in a message to Red Cross Chairman Norman H.Davis that “the tragedy which has overtaken the peoples of Europe knows no boundaries of race or religion.”

Catholic Archbishop Curley of Baltimore and Episcopal Bishop Freeman of Washington emphasized that all religions – must cooperate in support of the Red Cross, which ministers to all without respect to color, race, nationality or creed.
