Jewish Bodies in England Plan Parley on World Congress

Supporters of the World Jewish Congress movement in England were planning today the convocation of a national conference of Anglo-Jewish organizations to act with regard to Anglo-Jewish participation in the Congress, which opens at Geneva on August 8.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Anglo-Jewish representative body, has declined an invitation to participate in the Congress. Supporters of the Congress, therefore, want a national conference which could elect the representatives of this country to the Geneva meeting.

A committee is now being formed, it is understood, in whose name invitations will go out to all Jewish organizations in the country to send delegates to a conference to be held in London. The conference will be asked to approve participation by British Jewry in the world Jewish Congress and to elect representatives to it.
