An American Jewish Press Week, sponsored by the American Jewish Press Association will start tomorrow throughout the country to be followed by the annual convention of the publishers of English-Jewish weeklies which will open in Atlanta on May 20.

In a proclamation issued today by Philip Slomovitz, chairman of the Press Week, it was emphasized that the Jewish community in the United States needs proper communication. “Without it, many communities that are without newspapers, and communities which do not utilize the services offered to them by the Jewish press, will live in a vacuum, “the proclamation stated. It pointed out that the English-Jewish press” is the only effective Jewish press in the world today, outside of Israel, where the language is primarily Hebrew.
