A permanent local council for the American Jewish Congress was organized Sunday at a meeting which was attended by representatives of upwards of eighty fraternal and other organizations.

Leon Meltzer was unanimously elected President and Harry M. Seidenberg, Secretary. Other officers elected include: P. Miller and Dr. M. E. Kalish, Vice-Presidents; Abraham Hirsh, Chairman of the Executive Committee and Simon Lackerman, Treasurer.

The Conference was addressed by Rabbi Joshua Goldberg who described the conditions confronting the Jewish people in many lands. Resolutions were adopted calling upon the incoming administration to take steps leading to the strengthening of the organization. An effort is also to be made to establish a Court of Arbitration for the settlement of disputes arising among Jewish institutions. A resolution was adopted felicitating the poet, Chaim Nachman Bialik, on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday anniversary.
