Seventh Convention of Aleph Zadek Aleph Opens in West

Holding its convention in the West for the first time, the seventh annual international convention of Aleph Zadek Aleph, junior, B’nai B’rith, opened today at Oakland with more than 300 delegates present from the United States and Canada. The convention was preceded by a Western conference at which Western delegates laid plans to promote chapters there.

In his presidential message, Joseph Karesch of New York, stressed the growth of the order during the past year, pointing out that 25 new chapters had been added with a membership of 800. The outstanding questions on the agenda of the convention are the formation of scout troops through the efforts of the Aleph Zadek Aleph and the furthering of the program of Friday evening services in communities where they are not otherwise available.
