- Letter from Stephen S. Wise, Irving Miller, and Joachim Prinz to the Executive and Administrative Committee offering New Year's greetings for Rosh Hashanah 5709. The letter notes the "fulfillment of the great and sublime hope for the rebirth of the Jewish State.... We, the Jewish people, shall strive for the attainment of justice and equality and shall battle until the last vestige of injustice to any race or people shall have been obliterated."
- 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.
