(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

All factions in Prussian Jewry have united on the text of a bill which is to be presented to the Government for promulgating the reorganization of the Jewish communities as a result of a “peace conference” which ended here today.

The peace was arrived at during the convention of the Federation of Jewish communities in Prussia which met to discuss the matter.

The outstanding feature of the convention was the agreement of the liberals that East European Jews, resident in Prussia, are eligible for election to the communal boards. The text of the bill was then unanimously adopted.
