- Letter from R. Saltzman to Henry Monsky congratulating him on the decision to convene an American Jewish Conference of major Jewish organizations. Cannot have meant to have excluded the Jewish-American Section, of the I. W. O. with 40,000 members in 300 lodges in 61 cities in 29 states as a national Jewish organization with 40,000 members and 300 lodges ready to participate in the upcoming Conference's upcoming August convention. Ready to participate in fighting "the greatest enemy the Jewish people ever had."
- 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.
