Download PDF for this date

The General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, meeting in Edinburgh yesterday, condemned anti-Semitism and called upon its members “to be on the alert to oppose any appearance of it in this country. “

Rev. Charles A. Smith, who presented the report on which the church warning on anti-Semitism was based, called the conference’s attention to recent reports of anti-Semitic discrimination in golf clubs near Glasgow. Rev. Smith sharply reminded the clergymen that the people who discriminated against Jews in golf clubs might very well be members or even lay leaders of the Church of Scotland.
