(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The meeting of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Prussia closed here yesterday with the unanimous adoption of a resolution concerning the formation of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Germany.

The Prussian Federation went on record as being opposed “to the undemocratic principle of creating the general federation on the basis of the local state federations’ membership.” The meeting recommended that the general federation be formed on the basis of direct elections.
