Title

Letters between Mayor Smith and Alan I. Lapping, June and July 1977

Abstract

Correspondence between Mayor Al Smith from Alan I. Lapping, Secretary of the Council of Traditional/Orthodox Synagogues of Greater Chicago. The first letter, from Mr. Lapping, addresses two motions that the council passed: one to show their support of Skokie's efforts and ask that these efforts continue, and the other, in case the march occurs, urges their members to participate in a peaceful counter demonstration. The second letter is Mayor Smith's response, in which he expresses thanks and states that the Village will continue its efforts.
