May 31, 1962
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Representatives of 35 B’nai B’rith lodges and an equal number of Knights of Columbus councils entered a unique arrangement here today, whereby the Jewish and Catholic groups will collaborate in distribution of a film originally shown on the Catholic TV Hour.

The B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation League, which is a partner to the agreement, announced it has acquired from the Catholic organization two prints of the film, entitled “The Chosen People.” The prints will be made available to any group or organization that wishes to make the film showing a part of its program. Spokesmen for both ADL and the Knights of Columbus said they hoped the pattern of inter-religious collaboration, established by the new arrangement, may be followed in other parts of the country.
