Eisenhower Receives Jewish Republican Campaign Workers

Download PDF for this date

A group of more than 50 Jewish Republican Party leaders, active in the Presidential campaign, were today received by President Eisenhower who thanked them for their services during the campaign. They were presented to Mr. Eisenhower by Leonard W. Hall, Republican National Chairman, and Bernard Katzen, consultant to the Republican National Committee.

Later, the group held a conference at the Hotel Statler at which it decided to organize on a permanent year-round basis to work within the party. They were addressed by Vice President Nixon, who spoke of the Administration’s anti-discrimination and civil rights programs and who told the Jewish leaders that this aspect of the Administration program had the “whole-hearted” support of the President. Mr. Nixon described the Administration’s work in these fields as “quiet but effective.”
