American Council for Judaism Expresses Opposition to Zionism to Truman

(December 4, 1946?)

The American Council for Judaism was a tiny fringe organization of anti-Zionist Jews. This proposal from the group’s president, Lessing Rosenwald, to President Truman illustrates the group’s hostility to Zionists and its opposition to the creation of a “Moslem, Christian, or Jewish state, preferring that Jewish refugees be settled “everywhere” except for a limited number that would be permitted to settle in Palestine. Many of the recommendations reinforce the views and policies of the British.
