Volume 1, The Universal Jewish...

Created by Reform Rabbis and Jewish Scholars, many of whom escaped from Nazi Germany, the Encyclopedia exhibits a unique sensitivity to all forms of anti-Semitic agitation and malice and makes every effort to find allies among others, especially Christians, to forge a shield for Jewish people in the face of the coming catastrophe.

[ 189] THE UNIVERSAL JEWISH ENCYCLOPEDIA ALLIANCE . Allenby Road, Tel Avivs main street, in 1946. Photo, Keren Hayesod Alliance has undertaken, whenever necessary and pos-sible, to intercede for Jews who are subjected to op-pression and spoliation. In 1860 it petitioned the king of Italy with regard to the Mortara case. In 1862 it interceded with the Russian Ambassador in Paris, pleading for the redress of the grievances of the un-justly accused Jews of Saratov. Its first tangible suc-cess in its endeavors to secure civil and religious equal-ity for the Jews was in 1867, in behalf of the Jews of Switzerland, when complaints which it lodged with the powers of Europe resulted in concurrent action on the part of France, Italy, Belgium, and Holland, whose governments refused to renew their treaties with the Swiss Republic on account of the anti- Jewish laws in force in that country. The Alliance frequently re-quested protection for the Jews of Roumania and agi-tated for the removal of their civic disabilities and economic handicaps. The incessant persecutions in-flicted on the Jews in Roumania were discussed at con-ferences which the Alliance convened for that purpose in Brussels in 1872 and in Paris in 1875. A memorial reciting the grievances of the Roumanian Jews was submitted by the Alliance to the diplomatic congress at Constantinople. In 1878 representatives of the Al-liance appeared before the Congress of Berlin to inter-cede once more for the Jews of Roumania. In 1938 the Alliance protested against the anti- Jewish legislation and discriminations of the new government of Premier Octavian Goga. The fate of the maltreated Jews of Morocco was an-other problem of grave concern to the Alliance. It submitted a memorial in their behalf to the Congress of Madrid in 1880. The Alliance Israelite, the Anglo- Jewish Association, and committees of several Ameri-can Jewish organizations had remonstrated to their re-spective governments regarding the tragic situation which had developed in Morocco as a result of the cal-lous indifference of the Moorish rulers to the wrongs heaped on their Jewish subjects, and in consequence of these remonstrances and at the instance of the United States government the question was brought before the Algeciras Conference. At the session of that body on April 2, 1906, a resolution was adopted, calling on the sultan of Morocco to see  that the Jews of his empire and all his subjects, without distinction of faith, were treated with justice and equality. But no steps were taken to enforce this resolution, nor was it made a treaty obligation. This, however, had no bearing on the destiny of the Jews, for the Moorish rule ended soon after and a French protectorate was set up in its stead. Under French control the Jewish population en-joyed a great measure of safety and liberty, but condi-tions were still far from satisfactory, and in 1911 a deputation of the Central Committee of the Alliance waited on M. Poincaré, then French Premier and Min-ister of Foreign Affairs, and brought to his attention the oppression and terrorism which the ill- fated Mo-roccan Jews were compelled to endure. On July 16, 1918, the Central Committee sent a memorandum to the French Minister of Foreign Affairs with reference to the Balfour Declaration. In the Peace Conference of 1919, as well as at the Geneva Confer-ences, the Alliance cooperated with other Jewish bodies to secure minority rights for the Jews. It interceded repeatedly for the Jews of Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, Ser-bia, and Russia. It has agitated constantly since the World War for the minority rights of the Jews in Roumania, Hungary, Poland, Morocco, and Persia.
