- Letter from Louis Lipsky to Affiliated Organizations regarding the cancellation of the planned March 21st session of the American Jewish Conference. The ongoing need to maintain the Conference is due to the urgent situation in Palestine, the D.P. camps, and other postwar political issues. Hence the Interim Committee will continue given the "emergency situation which called this Conference into being continues." Although expected to become a permanent "American Jewish Assembly," no resolution has been achieved on how to do this. The letter also notes that a resolution on Palestine sponsored by B'nai B'rith, the Jewish War Veterans, and the National Council for Young Israel, was adopted at a special meeting of the Interim Committee on March 10th. The letterhead lists Rubin Saltzman as serving on the Conference's Interim Committee.
- 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.
