Download PDF for this date

A world Jewish congress to study the Jewish problem in its entirety, including the problems faced by Jews in various lands, whether these problems be racial, political, economic, social or educational, will be held in the summer of 1932, it was decided here yesterday at the close of a conference called by the American Jewish Congress to make preliminary plans for the congress.

The conference, which was under the chairmanship of Dr. Stephen S. Wise, decided to invite the official representatives of Jewish institutions and organizations from all parts of the world to participate. They will also be asked to share in the task of preparing the program for the congress.

A provisional presidium consisting of Dr. Wise, Dr. Leo Motzkin, chairman of the Committee of Jewish Delegations, Rabbi Mordecai Nurock, member of the Latvian parliament, and Oscar Kohn, German Socialist leader, was appointed. Z. Tygel of New York was named secretary of the presidium.
