Historical Note

In an effort to coordinate their minority rights defense activities, the American Jewish Committee, American Jewish Congress, B’nai B’rith and Jewish Labor Committee founded the General Jewish Council at a June 13, 1938 conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. While spearheading the formation of the General Jewish Council, which was known as the General Council for Jewish Rights in its early days, Edgar J. Kaufmann called on national and local Jewish defense and communal agency leaders to endorse the move, citing the following impetus: “The tragic plight of millions of Jews throughout Europe, -- concentration camps, public degradations, mass disenfranchisements, confiscations, ruthless expulsion of our people, -- the spectre of increasing race prejudice, intolerance and insecurity, -- these terrible forces of evil demand the most effective union possible of American Jewry at once.”1 For Kaufmann and the leaders of the four organizations, this “most effective union” meant the development of a common voice on the subject of rights protection for the Jewish community. In August 1938, eight representatives from the organizations met in New York City, which would be home to the General Jewish Council, and agreed on a constitution. The aim of the Council, as the constitution defined it, was to “consider and act upon proposals and plans for safeguarding the equal rights of Jews here and abroad.”2

The initial goal to address both domestic and international concerns shifted slightly in practice. There was often a lack of consensus between the four organizations on an approach to Jewish rights abroad. While the Council did issue public statements on behalf of European Jews and studied efforts at rescue and relief, the Council’s attention largely focused on the U.S.

On the domestic front, the Council investigated and evaluated state and federal legislative policy affecting rights, group libel cases and organizations of interest, such as the American League to Combat Antisemitism and various American Jewish press organizations. On the basis of that research the Council issued statements and recommendations to and on behalf of its constituent organizations, thereby streamlining the four organizations’ defense reactions.

There was frequent internal debate over the effectiveness and aims of the Council. In April 1941, the possibility of terminating the Council was floated, and the American Jewish Congress withdrew. The three remaining constituent organizations continued with the Council until 1944, when the Council was formally dissolved and the Council’s leaders and four founding organizations joined with the Council of Jewish Federations to form a new umbrella organization, the National Community Relations Advisory Council.

Scope and Content Note

This collection documents the successes and failures of the General Jewish Council’s constituents’ cooperative endeavors between 1938 and 1944. The collection most comprehensively covers the domestic legislative and topical research conducted by the Council and the resulting public statements the Council issued (Series IV and V). Major subjects researched include immigration law, Charles Coughlin, the American League to Combat Antisemitism, and group libel. There is some documentation of the Council’s relief efforts on behalf of European Jews (see the minutes in Series I and III; “Subcommittee on Food to Poland” and “Emergency Committee” folders in Series III; “Immigration – Polish Rabbis,” “Post-War Adjustment,” “Refugees,” and “Relief” folders in Series V).

Materials include correspondence, minutes, memoranda, reports, financial records, and a small amount of clippings and printed ephemera. The work and correspondence of the following individuals are notably present: Carl Austrian, Maurice Bisgyer, Ambrose Doskow, Edgar Kaufmann, Louis Lipsky, Arthur Meyer, Jerome Michael, Isaiah Minkoff, Henry Monsky, William F. Rosenblum, Ilse Schrier, David Sher, Sidney Wallach, and Stephen Wise.

Items that postdate the Council may have been generated or collected in connection with the National Community Relations Advisory Council.

Processing Information

A previous archivist arranged the collection and created a box list. In 2012, Rachel Miller added dates and collection- , series- and subseries-level description, rehoused the collection, and encoded the finding aid in EAD 2002. The folder titles assigned by the previous archivist and/or the records creators have largely been maintained and occasionally enhanced. For the most part the previous archivist's physical arrangement has not been changed, with the exception of adjusting a few locations in order to maintain alphabetical order and shifting the contents of “General Correspondence” folders (which were originally in Box 2 and in what is now known as Series I), which consisted of Public Relations Committee and Policy and Program Committee correspondence, into “Public Relations Committee – Correspondence” folders and “Policy and Program Committee – Correspondence” folders in boxes 7 and 8 in Series III.

Series III: Committees, 1938-1944

In English.
Boxes 6-8. 1.5 linear feet.
Arrangement:

Arranged in alphabetical order by committee.

Scope and Content:

The Council’s committees are documented by the minutes, correspondence and reports in this series. The committee with greatest representation, even trumping the Executive Committee (known as the Policy and Program Committee prior to 1940), is the Public Relations Committee (PRC). The PRC, one of the first committees created by the Council, was comprised of lawyers who researched and evaluated legal developments of interest to minority groups, and then issued advice to the Council and its constituents. In later years, the PRC formulated legislative policy as well, drafting model bills. Leaders and counsels of the PRC included Jerome Michael, Ambrose Doskow, Carl Sherman, David Sher, and Arthur Karger. Series IV represents much of the output of the PRC. Also of note is the Coordinating Committee’s Classification Committee (technically a subcommittee of the Coordinating Committee), which was responsible for determining and approving position statements on organizations about which constituent organizations or the communities they served had inquired. The resulting research and statements are in Series V.

Series V: Topics, 1938-1945

In English, with a few items in Yiddish and Russian.
Boxes 12-16. 2 linear feet.
Arrangement:

Arranged in alphabetical order by topic.

Scope and Content:

The General Jewish Council researched subjects and organizations of interest, and on the basis of that research the Council issued statements. This series represents that work. The Council’s attention was devoted in particular to American Jewish press organizations, the American League to Combat Anti-Semitism, and Charles Coughlin. In the case of Charles Coughlin, there is extensive angry correspondence from the public in response to the Council’s pamphlets entitled "Father Coughlin, His 'Facts' and Arguments” pamphlets.

The bulk of the material was generated, received or collected by the Coordinating Committee’s Classification Committee, the Policy and Program Committee, and the Public Relations Committee. Individuals behind the work documented here include Arthur Meyer, Isaiah Minkoff, Nathaniel Goodrich, George Backer, and Ambrose Doskow. Items include correspondence, memoranda (the term the Council used for the statements and recommendations they issued), reports, court transcripts, printed materials (including propaganda), and transcripts of phone conversations. See Series III for more information on the committees behind these materials.
