Dr. Heller, who is to formally open the Cincinnati convention said in his message: “I am delighted at the news that Judge Levinthal is available for the presidency of the ZOA. Few men merit and posses the esteem Zionists have for him. He would make an honest, devoted and fearless leader. I predict that the Cincinnati convention will elect him by an overwhelming majority.”

More than 1,500 delegates representing Zionist units in virtually every state of the Union will participate in the ZOA-convention. The conclave, which will last four days, will discuss the status of Palestine after the ### well as proposals for strengthening of the Zionist movement in this country.
