(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A conference of Jewish communities in the Eastern provinces of the Polish Republic was opened here yesterday.

The Jewish communities in the eastern provinces have not been included in the Jewish Communities Ordinance which is operative in Congress Poland and Galicia. They therefore have no legal status.

The Chief of the Jewish Department in the Polish Ministery of Education and Religions attended the conference.

Plans for the erection of a home for the aged as a memorial to Chaim Salomon, Jewish patriot of the American Revolution, were ratified Sunday at a meeting of the Warsaw Jewish Fraternal Society, in Westminster Hall, New York, at which more than 300 fraternal organizations were represented Plans were laid also for a campaign to raise funds.
