See Decline of Anti-semitism in England

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The decline of anti-Semitism in the English press is established in the annual report of the Board of Jewish Deputies, the Federation of Jewish communities in Great Britain, made public yesterday.

The report lays emphasis on the fact that the decline of anti-Semitism and the renewal of attacks on the schechita were the most striking features of Jewish life in England during the year 1926. Only one avowedly anti-Semitic weekly with negligible influence exists in the country, the report states.

In the opinion of the Joint Foreign Committee the situation of Jews in Eastern Europe continues to cause much anxiety, although symptoms of improvement in both the political and economic fields are noticeable along a wide area, with the exception of Roumania, the report states.
