Plan Merger of All Orthodox Rabbinical Groups in U.S.

A two-day convention of the Assembly of Orthodox Hebrew Rabbis (Keneseth Ho’Rabanim) opened yesterday at the Broadway Central Hotel, Manhattan. Rabbi Wolf Margolies, honorary president of the organization, greeted the convention and Rabbi J. Mendelsohn of Newark presided at the opening session.

Plans for merging all Orthodox rabbinical groups in this country, in an effort to do away with disputes among these groups, are being discussed at the convention. Other matters which the convention will take up are Sabbath observance, kashruth, Jewish education and the status of Orthodox rabbis in the United States.
