Some 300 orthodox rabbis stood on the steps of the nation’s capital Wednesday and solemnly listened to Rabbi Eliezer Silver, Cincinnati, Ohio, read a petition to Vice-President Wallace. It asked the United States to assume the role of modern David and deliver European Jews from extermination by the modern Philistines. Here are a few of the rabbis.
