The second conference of the Midwest Region of the Yiddish Culture Society will open here Friday, December 1 and will continue for three days, closing with a theatre performance of Sholem Aleichem’s “Menachem Mendl” by the Cleveland Dramatic Section of the Society on Sunday evening, December 3.

The conference will consider problems presented by the Society’s work in the midwestern states, as well as a number pertaining to the work of the central administration in New York. One day will be devoted to a discussion of the dramatic, literature-study, choral and other groups affiliated with the Yiddish Culture Society.
