- Letter Joe Brainin to Rubin Saltzman. "It occurs to me that it would be a logical and most timely move for the Committee of Writers [Committee of Jewish Artists, Writers and Scientists] to tender a dinner in honor of Gromyko. It could be made the biggest thing with a united most representative Jewish leadership acknowledging the Soviet Union as the only true spokesman for justice to the Jewish people. The affair would be a most healthy counter-serum against the hysterical anti-Communistic germs petrifying the atmosphere in Jewish circles. The Zionists must be placed in a position of having to confirm the fact that everybody double-crossed them except the Soviet Union. I believe that Gromyko can be obtained. He would surely realize the political significance of the move. I would suggest that a committee get to work immediately. The Zionists should not be approached now but only if we succeed in getting Gromyko. (As it is I'm afraid that the United Jewish Appeal is already angling for Gromyko;)"
- May 14 194, the USSR’s UN Representative Andrei Gromyko advocated the one-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. He stipulated that a two-state solution was an option if "relations between the Jewish and Arab populations of Palestine... proved to be so bad that it would be impossible to reconcile them".
- 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.
