" "In 1908 a Jewish Agitation Bureau was established [by the Socialist Party of America] in order to spread socialism among Yiddish-speaking Jews. Stimulated by immigrants with experience in the East European Bund, the Bureau developed into the Jewish Socialist Federation (J. S. F. ) from 1912, over strong opposition from Abe Cahan and other Yiddish-speaking stalwarts opposed to such "separatism. " Actually the J. S. F. Disavowed any distinct Jewish purpose and attempted only to spread socialism, while it vigorously combated Zionism. Its membership was drawn mainly from immigrants of Bundist background" (Schneier Levenberg in EJ) . SUBJECT(S) : Socialism -- Periodicals. Jews -- New York (State) -- New York -- Periodicals.
