Resolution of 32nd Council on Lynching

BE IT RESOLVED, That the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, in the spirit of the traditional regard for our faith for the sanctity of law, especially where the protection of human life is concerned, or the protection of the rights of the minority, and with a sacred regard for civil liberty and an abhorrence of mob violence, solemnly sets forth its condemnation of the lawlessness and barbarity of lynching, and that it hereby calls upon the constituted authorities to use every precaution to prevent such occurrence whenever the danger arises.
