National Council of Jewish Women Discusses Jewish Post-war Problems

Download PDF for this date

The necessity of studying and understanding the problems which will confront Jews and other minority groups in the post-war period, was emphasized today at a one-day Regional Institute held by the National Council of Jewish Women at the Park Central Hotel, attended by more than 150 delegates representing Council sections in the Metropolitan area. Broader aspects of post-war problems as they will affect the United States and the rest of the world were similarly discussed.

Jacob Robinson, director of the Institute on Jewish Affairs, addressed the gathering on “The Jews and Minority Rights,” pointing out that it is premature as yet to formulate concrete Jewish proposals for the peace conference which will follow a United Nations’ victory. Max Gottschalk, director of the Institute on Peace and Post-War Problems of the American Jewish Committee, spoke on Jewish Immigration and Colonization. An address on Palestine’s place in the post-war rehabilitation of Jews was delivered by Arthur Lurie, secretary of the American Emergency Committee for Zionist Affairs. Rabbi Jonah B. Wise spoke on the responsibility of American Jewry for Jewish post-war reconstruction. Mrs. Albert J. May presided.
