All-german Federation of Jewish Communities Not Formed: Differences at Conference over Method of Rep

The attempt to form an All-German Federation of Jewish Communities (Reichsverband) has again broken down. The Conference of representatives of the Federations of Jewish Communities in the various German States which has been held at Frankfurt has been unable to agree on the method in which the new All-German Federation is to be constituted. The plan for appointing representatives put forward by the Prussian Federation of Jewish Communities has been objected to by other Federations on the ground that it would give the Prussian Federation dominance over the projected new All-German Federation.
