(Jewish Telegraph Agency)

The Agudath Israel, the world organization of ultra-Orthodox Jews, celebrated its 15th anniversary during the month of June.

The organization was founded at a convention of Orthodox leaders held in Kartowitz on June 12, 1912.

Meetings of Agudath followers were held during the month of June in Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and in other countries.

In London the occasion was celebrated at a meeting at which the Agudath leaders, Dr. M. Hildesheimer and Dr. Deutchlaender, both of Germany, were the main speakers.
