THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
Steinbrink Files Formal Complaint
Against New Jersey Hotel
Justice Meier Steinbrink of Brooklyn has filed a formal com
plaint with the New Jersey Division Against Discrimination charging
that he was denied accommodations by the Chalfonte-Haddori Hall
in Atlantic City because of his "Jewish creed."
The incident which prompted
the action by the recently retired
New York Supreme Court Judge
occurred on March 5, 1952, when
he attempted to make a reserva
tion for a double room through
the Chalfonte’s New York office.
The request was made via tele
phone by the Judge’s secretary
in his name. Later that same day
the Hotel’s New York representa
tive called back to say that no
accommodations were available
for the desired dates, March 25th
to April Ist.
"Suspecting that the refusal of
accommodations was due to my
Jewish name," Justice Steinbrink
stated, "I immediately arranged
for a telephone call to be made
to the New York office of the
respondent hotel under the name
of John Elliot."
This reservation, the Judge as
serted, which was for the same
accommodations originally re
quested by him, was granted by
the hotel and subsequently con
firmed by letter.
On the basis of these facts. Jus
tice Steinbrink concluded in his
complaint that the Chalfonte-
Haddon Hall had denied him ac
commodations "on account of my
creed, thereby violating the law
of New Jersey barring such dis
crimination."
The Chalfonte Haddon Hall
Hotel has also been named in a
similar complaint filed with the
New Jersey Division Against
Discrimination by Mrs. Rose
Seligsberg of New York City.
Mrs. Seligsberg maintained that
she called the hotel for a single
reservation for March 6 and was
assured by a room clerk that "I
could come to the hotel any time
and that they had any number of
rooms available." After giving her
name, however, she subsequently
received a letter from George J.
Turcotte, the manager, stating
that no accommodations were
available because the hotel was
"completely booked to capacity."
Mrs. Seligsberg related that she
went to Atlantic City on March
3 and pointed out to Mr. Turcotte
that his letter was "inconsistent
with the information I had re

lager still claimed, however, that
Ino accommodations were avail
| able for March 6 because of “Eas
ier.” Mrs. Seligsberg pointed out
lin her complaint that March 6
:was more than A month prior to
the Easter holiday.
I In a letter to the New Jersey
Division Against Discrimination.
Oscar Groner, of Newark, New
Jersey Regional Director of the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, recalled that "numerous
persons of Jewish faith had com
plained of discriminatory prac
tices on the part of the Chalfonte-
Haddon Hall Hotel.
Mr. Groner further pointed out
that “the hotel frankly admitted
| its anti-Semitic policy in a cir
cular letter to travel agents dated
July 22, 1938,” which noted that
“We solicit Gentile patronage.”
Subsequently, the hotel denied
following a policy of discrimina
tion but, Mr. Groner added, “com
plaints invariably point out that
persons with Jewish names who
wanted to make a reservation at
the hotel were told that no ac
commodations were available
