Federation of Liberal Jews at Annual Meeting Meanwhile Approves Attitude of Its Leaders in Having Re

The Federation of Liberal Jews in Germany held its annual meeting here yesterday.

Owing to the fact that the Executive of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Prussia was meeting the same day in Frankfurt, several of the leaders were absent. Herr Heinrich Stern, the President of the Federation of Liberal Jews, was in the chair, and there was a large attendance of representatives from all over the country, including many Liberal Rabbis and young people.

A resolution introduced by Herr Georg Goetz, former Secretary-General of the Federation, and now editor-in-chief of the “Juedisch-liberale Zeitung”, was adopted unanimously, which declares that in the opinion of the Federation of Liberal Jews the work of the United Jewish religious community can be carried on only by recognising that differences of outlook exist among the members and therefore excluding from the scope of activities all those questions which divide the members and confining the work to those common tasks on which all members of the Community are agreed. The resolution goes on to express the unanimous approval of the Federation of the action of the Liberal fractions in the Federation of Prussian Communities, and in the Berlin Jewish Community, in standing by these principles and calls upon them to uphold these principles to their logical end.
