Delegates from Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse will meet next Sunday at the Temple of the Society of Concord in a conference to discuss problems of the Reform Jewish congregations of the western part of the state. The conference has been called by Samuel J. Harris of Buffalo, as part of the program of the Northeast Religious Union, regional division of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. Delegates will be present from Temple Beth Zion of Buffalo, Temple B’rith Kodesh of Rochester and the Temple of the Society of Concord of Syracuse.

The conference will start with a luncheon for all the delegates. Greetings will be extended on behalf of the Society of Concord by Benjamin Stolz, the president, and by the rabbi, Benjamin Friedman. The main address at the luncheon will be delivered by Dr. Joseph L. Fink, rabbi of Temple Beth Zion of Buffalo.

The luncheon will be followed by two group meetings, one for men and one for women, to discuss membership and financial structure, temple management, brotherhood programs and sisterhood activities. The two groups will join for a late afternoon meeting, at which they will be addressed by Rabbi Philip S. Bernstein of Rochester.
