Fight Between Zionists and Assimilationists Looms at Rome Kehillah Election

A BITTER FIGHT BETWEEN ZIONISTS AND ASSIMILATIONISTS LOOMED TODAY IN THE ELECTION OF A BOARD OF THE ROME JEWISH COMMUNITY, CALLED FOR OCT. 15.

RABBI DISEGNI OF TURIN, WHO SIGNED THE RECENT APPEAL OF RABBIS AND JEWISH LEADERS FOR JEWISH UNITY, HAS RESIGNED FROM THE BOARD UNDER THE PRESSURE OF ASSIMILATIONISTS.

JEWISH COMMUNAL AFFAIRS ARE NOW BEING ADMINISTERED BY A GOVERNMENT-APPOINTED COMMISSIONER, NAMED AFTER THE RESIGNATION OF ZIONIST MEMBERS WHICH REDUCED THE MEMBERSHIP TO BELOW THE STATUTORY TWO-THIRDS.
