Download PDF for this date

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A more widely representative Jewish body for the purpose of dealing with the protection of Jewish rights in East European countries, will be formed at a conference of European and American Jewish representatives which is to take place in July, 1927.

This was the decision reached at the conference of representatives of the Committee of Jewish Delegations of Paris and of the American Jewish Congress of which Dr. Stephen S. Wise is the leading delegate.

The new body which is to consist of democratically elected representatives is to be entrusted with the specific task of dealing with the questions affecting the Jewish population in those countries where their rights were guaranteed under the clauses of the National Minority Treaties supplements to the Versailles Peace Treaty.

An invitation is to be extended to all Jewish societies affiliated with the Committee of Jewish Delegations and other Jewish organizations which are concerned with the Jewish minority rights.
