American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 1922

The following is the Fourteenth Annual Report of the American Jewish Committee (AJC). The AJC's Annual Meeting was held on 14 November 1920. This report begins with the Annual Report of the Executive Committee, which includes biographical sketches of a few recently deceased Jewish leaders, such as Jacob Schiff, Harry Cutler, and Israel Friedlander. Then, in a section on anti-Jewish propaganda, the report emphasizes the problems created by the charge of Jewish bolshevism, and the AJC's rejection of "The Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion" as a forgery. Included in this section are letters written to Henry Ford and to Major George Haven Putnam on the topic of Anti-Jewish incitement and propaganda. Furthermore, in the subsequent section on Foreign Affairs, the conditions of Jews in countries such as Poland, Soviet Russia, Lithuania, The Ukraine, Hungary, Roumania, Palestine, and Yemen, are assessed. Following a discussion of International Jewry, the report turns towards domestic affairs, and includes discussions of anti-Jewish discrimination, immigration, the Falashas, the American Jewish Congress, and the American Jewish Year Book, among other topics. Finally, the Annual Report concludes with an article entitled "The "Protocols," Bolshevism, and the Jews," which was published on 1 December 1920 and was written collectively by 'American Jewish Organizations' to their 'fellow-citizens.'
