- Translated Summary: Letter asks potential donors to contribute to a $50,000 fund "for the protection of our shules....We are the only workers' shule in the country. We are the only school which aims to rear a generation prepared to lead the struggle for peace, for the upholding of Jewish culture, in the interests of the people." "Our enemies are well aware of the role which we are playing, and it is from this knowledge that their vicious attacks stem, and because of this it is so vital for all of our friends to surround and defend our shules.... our future existence depends upon the success of this campaign."
- Dating based on mention of 26 years of the Ordn Shule.
- 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.
