Two Attempts Are Planned to Organize Bessarabian Communities

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Two rival conferences are to meet in Bessarabia in July for the purpose of organizing the Jewish communities. At the meeting of the Kishineff Korabke (kosher meat tax) Council held here, Chief Rabbi Zirelson, who was in the chair, attacked the Zionists and the Jewish cooperatives for having decided to take the initiative in organizing the Jewish communities. The meeting adopted a resolution protesting against the action of the Zionists and the Jewish cooperatives in this respect, and demanding that the committee elected by the Co-operative Conference for this purpose should be dissolved.

Chief Rabbi Zirelson is convoking a Conference of Bessarabian Jewish Communities for July 3rd. About the same time the Conference called by the Jewish Co-operatives will also be meeting and it is thought here that the result will be to organize two separate sets of Jewish communities in Bessarabia.
