Segregation of men and women during the Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur holiday services next year will be abolished here at the Herzl Synagogue, an orthodox congregation, it was announced by Carl Rubinstein, president. Further modernization of ceremonies and worship will be inaugurated, Mr. Rubinstein said, to provide a form of devotion that will be compatible to the Americanized Jew without sacrificing important traditions.
