and calling upon the delegates of the
nations assembled in Paris "to take
steps immediately to put an end ito
these outrages and to insist that en
forceable provisions be made for eco
nomic, civic and religious equality for
all peoples and for their protection
Another important resolution adopt

revival of a Jewish nationality, or the
foundation of a Jewish State, but to
the faithful and consistent fulfilment
of Us religious mission in ithe world."

Union call upon all Jews of America
and the res.t of the world to join in a
Jewish Rights and Rehabilitation

clearly and forcefully defined the
Union's attitude toward Zionism. For
American Jews, he said, their only sal
vation is in the recognition of Ju
daism as a religion, and the living of
a Jewish life in a relgious sense. He
declared that there a no other justifi
cation for their existence as a separ
ate people in America.

AMERICAN RED MOGEN DAVID.
The campaign of the American Red
Mogen David for an emergency fund
of 1100,000 to be used for the welfare
of Jewish legionaires in Palestine and
of their families in this country, was
officially launched Monday night at
a reception given to three hundred
volunteer workers for Greater New
York at Hotel Astor. The task of rais
ing the funds by means of a national
campaign in the 106 cities in which
branches of the Red Mogen David
have been established is now well un
der way, and indications are that the
fund will be raised within a short
period. Contributions have already be
gun to pour in, among them a theck
for $1000 from Mrs. Nathan Straus.
The needs of the legionaires and
the conditions under which they fought
paign director were among the speak
ers in Yiddish and English at the
Hotel Astor. Legionaires who have
recently returend from Palestine told
of the exploits of the Jewish fighters,
and described the conditions which
they now are facing, boredom, home
sickness, and depression. They urged
that canteens and recreation rooms be
opened in Palestine that provision be
made for the legionaires upon their
return to this country. Nisim Bohar,
representative of the Alliance Israel
ite Francaise, who was one of the
founders of the Jewish legions then
urged that financial aid be given to
the legionaries to enable them to col
onize in Palestine. Emanuel Hertz,
Mrs. Charles A. Splvacke, national
president, and Henry Eiser, cam-,
paign director wereamong the speak
ers, and music was furnished by Phin-
eas Jassinowsky and Platon Brouoff.
Volunteer workers will organize
throughout Greater New York within
the next two weeks, and branches of
the Red Mogen David throughout the
country will carry the campaign to
their respective communities. Quotas
have been fixed for each locality, New
York's quota being $35,000. The Em
ergency fund will be used for the ex
tention of canteen work and recrea
tion facilities among the Jewish leg
ionaries. The Red Mogen David has
already sent 27,000 francs to Pales
tine for this work. Legionaries who
return home will be given material as
sistant and will be aided to secure
employment The Red Mogen David
will continue ito aid their families and
will assist those who desire to settle
in the Holy Land. The remarkable rec

ord attained by the Legionarei in
Palestine, as the first Jewish battle
units since Biblical times, has made
their campaign of great interest
They have been highly praised by
General AUenby and other officials
under whom they fought, and were
largely instrumental in bringing
about the defeat of the Turks.
Organized one year ago as a wel
fare auxiliary to the Legionares the
American Red Mogen David provided
comforts and entertainment for all ol
the legionares upon their departure
from this country, supplying them
with every necessity, from Sefer To
rah to a shaving outfit Since the men
were Jewish soldiers, enlisting undei
& British flag, recruited in this coun
try, they did not come within the cart
of the American War Welfare Agen
cies, and consequently the America!.
Red Mogen David was the only or
ganization which could properly meet
their needs. Thousands of dollars
were spent by this organization ot
the maintenance of their families. Tt
was recently found possible to or
ganize canteen work abroad.
