Herbert Hoover Administration: Endorses Funding for Jews of Eastern Europe

(August 21, 1929)

I wish to felicitate the Jews of America upon their nationwide and wholehearted cooperation in the ORT campaign for the industrial and general economic reconstruction of the distressed Jews of Eastern Europe and to extend my greetings and best wishes to those gathered at the ORT Reconstruction Banquet in New York to further this humane program.

HERBERT HOOVER
