(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The problem of the perpetuation of Judaism in America will occupy the center of interest at the thirtieth biennial convention of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations in Cleveland on January 17-20. Simultaneously with the convention of the Union the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods and the National Federation of Temple Brotherhoods will hold their biennial meetings and their delegates will attend the discussions of the topic of major interest.

Declaring that the greatest task of the Jews of America today is the preservation of its religion, the Union has arranged for three symposiums at its biennial convention which will attempt to arrive at a solution of this problem. One conference will discuss Judaism and the Synagogue, another, Judaism and the Home, and a third, Judaism and the Youth of Tomorrow. At each symposium the general discussion will be preceded by addresses by leading rabbis and laymen of the United States and Europe.

The list of speakers to lead the conference is being prepared by Marcus Aaron of Pittsburgh.

Congregations, Brotherhoods, and Sisterhoods are now selecting delegates to attend the convention. Plans for the reception of the delegates are under the direction of a committee representing the Reform congregations of Cleveland, under the chairmanship of Benjamin Lowenstein.
