Download PDF for this date

The Eighteenth Annual Convention of the Independent Order Brith Sholom was concluded today with the re-election of the present chief officers of the Order. Sol C. Kraus of Philadelphia was again elected Grand Master and Martin O. Levy, Grand Secretary.

The most important action taken by the convention was the adoption of an amendment to the constitution of the Order providing for the fraternal rate basis instead of the present assessment basis.

Resolutions were adopted sending the Zionist Convention greetings, calling upon the Government to use all of its powers for the dissolution of the Ku Klux Klan. Another expressed the appreciation of the members to President Harding for his activity in behalf of Jewish interests. Greetings and pledges of cooperation were ordered sent to Sir Herbert Samuel, Dr. Chaim Weizmann and the Zionist Convention.
