The following is the Sixteenth Annual Report of the American Jewish Committee (AJC). The AJC's Annual Meeting was held on 12 November 1922. This report begins with the Annual Report of the Executive Committee, which includes a report on the state of anti-Semitism in America, the state of immigration into the United States, the use of wine for ritual purposes during prohibition and a discussion of the Jewish method of slaughter. Then, the report turns to the conditions of Jews in foreign countries, with subsections dealing with anti-Jewish propaganda, economic life, educational and spiritual life, political and civil status and Palestine, among other topics. Finally, organizational matters (deaths, membership, etc.) are discussed, and the report concludes with an essay entitled "A Response to the Question Whether Unfermented Wine may be used in Jewish Ceremonies" by Professor Louis Ginzberg of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
