A campaign for $10,000 by Young Judaea for the support of the Boy and Girl Scout Movement in Palestine will be inaugurated at the end of January.
This decision was made at the annual mid-year conference of Young Judaea, attended by leaders throughout the country, which opened on Saturday evening and concluded on Monday morning.
The convention also announced its intention of continuing the prize inaugurated last year, of a trip to Palestine and cash prizes to the winners in the oratorical contest on the subject of “Palestine and World Jewry.” An essay contest for leaders of Young Judaea clubs on the best methods of teaching young people to be worthy members of young Judaea, with a trip to Palestine as the first prize will also be held.
The twentieth anniversary of the founding of Young Judaea will be celebrated next June, the convention decided.
The conference was preliminary to a nation-wide campaign to interest the Jewish communities of the country in Jewish youth problems and to ask support for the group in its educational work.
The principal addresses of the convention were delivered by Rabbi Israel Goldstein, President of Young Judaea; Dr. Salo Baron of the Jewish Institute of Religion and Mr. Samuel Borowsky, Executive Chairman of Young Judaea.
