Tract Body to Map Education Program

A program whose purpose will be “to disseminate knowledge of Judaism among the public, Jewish and non-Jewish, to the end that a better understanding of our faith and its principles arise and prejudice now prevailing disappear” will be considered Saturday evening at the annual meeting of the tract commission of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations and the Central Conference of American Rabbis at the Congress Hotel, Chicago.

Dr. Leo M. Franklin of Detroit, chairman of the commission, will preside at the meeting which is being held in connection with the sessions of the Central Conference scheduled to open Tuesday.

The members of the commission, beside Dr. Franklin, are: Dr. Edward N. Calisch of Richmond, Va.; Dr. Harry W. Ettelson of Memphis, Tenn.; Dr. Israel Bettan of Cincinnati; Rabbi Samuel Hirschberg of Milwaukee; Milton M. Alexander of Detroit and Rabbi Louis I. Egelson of Cincinnati, secretary.
