- Translated Summary: Saltzman's November 30th reply, acknowledges that they have received the books and promises to send money as they begin to sell. But also complains that the book only reprinted half of his talk, cutting it off in the middle. Supposes it was because they took the talk from the "Nayer prese" and only reprinted the first part. Argues the injury is not just to Saltzman himself, but to the I.W.O.'s school movement as a whole, and they should try to think of a way to make it right. The book in question is the report of the founding conference of the Alveltiker Yiddish Culture Congress YKUF [IKUF]. The Parisian organizing committee headed by Slovès, Comité D'Organisation du Congrès Mondial de la Culture Juive, is located at 55 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, Paris (9eme). The national committee of the IKUF/YKUF (Alveltlekher Yidisher Kultur-Farband or World Jewish Culture Association) in America: Kalmen (Kalman) Marmor (Mermer), Zishe Weinper, Paul (Pesach) Novick, Nachman Meisel, Rubin Saltzman, Itche Goldberg, Rabbi Avrom Bik (Abraham Bick), Raphael Mahler, Kleinberg, (B.Z.) Goldberg (Benjamin Waife, Sholem Aleichem’s son-in-law), Moishe Katz, Ahron Gudelman (Aaron Gidelman).
- Disambiguation: this is not the Congress for Jewish Culture.
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.
