Young Judaea’s 22d Annual Convention Opens, Long Branch

An educational policy which will make Young Judea a more effective factor in the Jewish communal life of this country will be the keynote of the twenty-second annual convention of Young Judaea which opened here tonight with over 250 delegates from all parts of the country in attendance. The convention was opened by Dr. Israel Goldstein, Young Judaea’s president.

Following brief greetings from local Jewish leaders, the executive director, Samuel Borowsky, presented the annual report and various committees were appointed. The convention will last four days.

Tomorrow’s session will be divided into several sections, each of which will discuss a distinct phase of Young Judaea’s educational program. Leadership, planning a program for the year, the Palestine aspect of Young Judaea and the business of a club, are some of the problems to be discussed. A symposium on “Palestine and Diaspora Judaism” will be held Friday evening.
