The International Jew Study Hour March 7, 2013

Rule of the Jewish Kehillah Grips New York – Episode 37

 “The International Jew” Study Hour presents:   Carolyn Yeager and Hadding Scott complete the reading of Chapter 32 from last week “Jewish Supremacy in the Motion Picture World” and move on to  Chapter 33:  “Rule of the Jewish Kehillah Grips New York.”

Tonight’s episode is the first of a series of chapters describing how Jews organized to retain clan solidarity among the huge numbers of immigrant Jews, largely from Russia and Poland, that remained in New York City once they arrived. They  were organized under the New York Kehillah with the help of the American Jewish Committee.
The “Kehillah” has the same meaning as “Kahal,” which was in control in the ghettos of the “old country” and has courts today in NY City and signifies “community,” “assembly” and  government – the Jewish form of government in the dispersion. In reality, the Kehillah is an alliance against the Gentiles.
Among the Jews pictured are Louis Marshall (upper right), a founder of the American Jewish Committee ) and Rabbi Judah Leib Magnes (lower left), a founder of the New York Kehillah.
Note: We are using the Noontide Press publication of The International Jew — The World’s Foremost Problem which can be found online here as a pdf file.
