(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Another step in according equality in synagogal affairs to Jewish women was made by the United Synagogue of Great Britain, an organization of Orthodox synagogues.

The decision was taken after a heated and acrimonious debate. It was decided by a small majority that women pew holders have the right to vote in synagogal affairs.
