Abstract

The American Jewish Congress is as an association of Jewish Americans organized to defend Jewish interests at home and abroad through public policy advocacy, using diplomacy, legislation, and the courts.

Throughout the 1930s, Rabbi Stephen Wise, was vocal in his warnings about the dangers of Nazism. When Adolf Hitler was named chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933, Wise organized a mass protest rally at Madison Square Garden, in New York City. He did this despite strong opposition by the German government, the U.S. State Department, and conservative Jewish organizations such as AJCommittee and B'nai B'rith. The American Jewish Congress continued to organize protest rallies throughout the 1930s and 1940s. In August 1933 the American Jewish Congress led a general boycott of German goods.[3]

On March 7, 1934 at Madison Square Garden in New York City,
twenty thousand people gathered and listened to speeches marking the first anniversary of Hitler's rise to power in Germany, as thousands more tuned in to a live radio broadcast. The principal organizer of the protest rally, the American Jewish Congress, drew this level of public attention because it had carefully enlisted support from dozens of other organizations
and solicited appearances from public figures like Al Smith and
Fiorello LaGuardia. Most significantly, it had organized the rally, not as a typical protest rally, but as a mock trial of Adolf Hitler.
