As part of a nation-wide program in 33 cities, designed to assure preservation of “the American heritage of religious freedom,” the Third New York City Seminar of Catholics, Jews and Protestants, under the auspices of the National Conference of Jews and Christians is announced for next Monday and Tuesday, at Teachers College, Columbia University. Lessons that America should learn from current developments in Germany and the need in this country for civic cooperation on the part of all religious groups will be the general themes of the seminar, the program for which is being arranged by Martin Conboy, Justice Joseph M. Proskauer and Charles H. Tuttel, as Catholic, Jewish and Protestant co-chairmen.
In addition to the regular program features, the seminar will provide a setting for the first joint appearance and participation in such deliberations of Father J. Elliot Ross, Rabbi Morris S. Lazaron and the Rev. Everett R. Clinchy, who leave for Baltimore immediately after its close, to share in the direction of a round-table there on November 1. From Baltimore they proceed on a pilgrimage across the country on a schedule arranged by the National Conference of Jews and Christians, with the cooperation of a thousand or more laymen working on local committees in important cities and at leading colleges and universities from coast to coast.
