See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A public mass meeting to protest against Nazi persecution of Jews in Germany will be held Wednesday at 8 p. m. at Temple Kahillath Israel, 1600 Crotona Park East, the Bronx, under the auspices of the President McKinley Square Section of the American Jewish Congress.

M. Jason Gould, president of the McKinley Square Section, will be chairman of the mass meeting.

Main speakers include Rabbi Stephen S. Wise; Maldwin Fertig; Isador Teitelbaum, president of the Bronx Division of the American Jewish Congress; Dr. Samuel Margoshes, editor of The Day; Magistrate Benjamin E. Greenspan; Commissioner of Public Works William Lyman; Herman M. Albert, register of Bronx County; Assistant District Attorney Martin M. Frank; Assemblyman Samuel Weisman; and Sydney Rosenthal Queen’s criminal lawyer.

The mass meeting will be the first ever arranged in the Bronx by the American Jewish Congress, Gould stated. It is part of an effort being made by the American Jewish Congress, he explained, to make Jews in the Bronx conscious of their racial identity.
