B’nai B’rith Lodge Votes Endorsement of Boycott

September 27, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Approval of a national boycott against German-made goods while the present anti-Jewish terrorism of the Hitler regime continues was expressed by the Gilead lodge of B’nai B’rith here at its first fall meeting. I. B. Pad-way, leader in the lodge, predicted the national B’nai B’rith would officially come out for the boycott. He contended further that the boycott would be a patriotic act at this time, since it would encourage consumption of American-made products. He attacked the “sadism and perversion” of the present Nazi government.
