A national program designed to “revitalize synagogue life”, which will require the sum of $50,000, will be carried out by the United Synagogue of America in connection with the five-day week being advocated by the NRA.

Israel Silverman, treasurer, announced that the program includes the institution of courses of study in every house of worship throughout the country and widespread membership campaigns to draw larger attendance at the Sabbath service.
