No Formal Invitation to Jewish World Conference Received by Joint Foreign Committee Mr. D’avigdor Go

No invitation has been received, Mr. O. E. d’Avigdor Goldsmid, the President of the Jewish Board of Deputies, said this afternoon at the meeting of the Board, when Mr. J. Bolloten, who moved at the meeting of the Board held on May 22nd., a resolution calling on the Board “to summon an International Conference of delegates from the Jewries of the world, which was afterwards withdrawn, asked him whether the Joint Foreign Committee had received any information regarding the proposed world Jewish Conference which was to be organised by the American Jewish Congress, and if so whether anything had been done in the matter.

A representative of the American Jewish Congress was invited to attend the last meeting of the Joint Foreign Committee, Mr. d’Avigdor Goldsmid added, but he telegraphed that owing to illness he was unable to meet us on that occasion.

No formal invitation, he said, has been received.
