The Rabbinical Alliance of America will honor Generalissimo Francisco Franco of Spain by presenting him with an ancient sacramental wine cup. Rabbi Abraham Gross, president of the Alliance, handed the cup over to Rabbi Chaim U. Lipschitz tonight in ceremonies at Kennedy Airport. Rabbi Lipschitz, who left for Spain at the invitation of the Spanish Government, will present the cup to the Spanish dictator.
Rabbi Lipschitz, editor of the Jewish Press of Brooklyn, is author of a book, “Franco and the Jews,” which credits the generalissimo with having made possible the rescue of 60,000 Jews from the Nazis during World War II. The Rabbinical Alliance is composed of about 500 Orthodox rabbis.
