The question whether a resolution was passed, that the Society shall belong to the region, was in order.

  • Image 01
    of the [illegible] meeting in New York, and he thinks that the protest adopted at the said meeting, against the Zionist World Organization is fully justified, and he hopes that Dr. Weitzman, after he will fully consider the justification of the American Zionist Organization, will accede to their demands. He therefore moved that a vote of confidence be passed for the Executive[?] Committee of the American Zionist Organization. Rabbi Horowitz seconded and it was unanimously passed. Mr. J. Turteltaub moved II Mr. Clein to send a Telegram of Welcome to Dr. Weitzman and his associates and it was carried unanimously. Mr. G.

    April 17, 1921 A Member meeting was held at the Daughters of Israel Hall. Mr. J. Goldman in Chair. The Minutes of the last meeting was read and unanimously adopted. Mr. Rittenberg gave a vivid description of the Reception accorded to Dr. Weitzman and his assoiciates. To him Dr. Weitzman appears superhuman as it would be impossible for any human mind to contain so many thoughts; and to have the power to impart his thoughts so clearly. He considers Mr. Ussiskin[?] a great man, but he is devoid of creative ability, being as unmovable as the Rock of Gibraltar. Prof. Mosseson[?] is just the contrary. He is of a peaceable disposition. Dr. Levin[?] is celebrated in the work of propoganda. Mr. Stern the private secretary of Dr. Weitzman can be in the best success described as a Walking Dictionary. He attended the grand Meeting at the Metropolitan Opera House, and even the Masters present could not give this meeting a just picture. But he regrets to say, that this Meeting could not bring the [illegible] together yet he hopes, that some agreement will be
  • Image 01
    made in the near future. Mr. Hepler said he was not satisfied, that something is kept back from the public, and the Members are entitled to know the real difference between the World Organization and American Zionist Organization. However, he thinks, that it is proper that this Society shall send a letter to the parties urging them to arrange matters peaceably. Mr. Sam Rittenberg then read a letter addressed to Mr. Mack urging for Peace. Mr. K. Fleischman from N.Y. gave a fine talk of the importance of the Common Wealth, for which he is engaged as solicitor. His talk was very [illegible], live and enjoyable.
