See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Rabbinical Council of America, an organization of Orthodox rabbis, urged the United States Government today to continue to refuse to accept Warsaw as the site for the proposed peace talks with Vietnam. The organization said that to select Warsaw for the talks would be to imply endorsement by both Washington and Hanoi of the anti-Semitic campaign currently being waged in Poland. “To select the capital of Poland, which is engaged in a hateful campaign of anti-Semitism that is reminiscent of Nazism and Stalinism is to subject the meetings to a handicap which cannot be overcome,” Rabbi Pesach Z. Levovitz, president of the Council, declared.
