Three decades of dedi-
cated labors for the ad-
vancement of interfaith ac-
tivities in the U.S. and
Canada inspired a gather-
ing of-representatives of all
faiths in a salutation to the
chief guide in these efforts.

NOW.
AND FOR
THE FUTURE.

The Jewish Defense League
works to accomplish
several things:

1) Change the Jewish image and
teach the anti-Semite that
Jewish blood is not cheap.

2) Protect Jewish property, per-
sons, and lives by letting the
-
Jew-hater know that he is in
danger of losing his.

3) Destroy the Jewish fears that
contribute so much en-
couragement to the anti-
Semite. The JDL aims to instill
self-respect and self-pride in a
Jew who is ashamed of
himself for running away.

4) Teach the Jew that the pain of
every Jew is his own pain and
that it is his obligation to do all
that is necessary to defend
another Jew.
