- In Yiddish. Translated Summary. Begins, "It pleases us greatly to hear you have received our latest shipment of 14 boxes of clothing..." Also glad to have the photos and are putting them to good use. Hurrying this letter in the hope that they can send a greeting from the central committee in Paris and especially from the children in Andrésy on the occasion of the [Emma Lazarus Division] national conference, to be held November 15th and 16th. In addition to such a cable (or letter, if they're sure it will arrive in time), Gordon asks them to assure the Ordn's members of their intention to give the children in Andrésy a Yiddish education. Such a letter would be an aid in putting together their panel on "Yidishe kinder-- haynt un morgn", or "Jewish children, today and tomorrow."
- The Jewish education of these children appears of concern. Gordon, who is the Emma Lazarus Division President, is likely to have written the letter originally in English. Rayski is one of the founders in 1944 of CRIF (Conseil représentatif des institutions juives de France) and of the earlier Comité général de défense juive.
- The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
