Endorsement of the Biltmore Declaration, which asks the creation of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine after the war, and a pledge to sell $1,000,000 worth of war bonds during the coming year were included in resolutions adopted by the 41st annual convention of the Independent Order Brith Sholom, which concluded here yesterday.

The delegates also expressed their endorsement of the “aims, purposes and principles of the American Jewish Conference.” Alexander Goodman of Baltimore was elected Grand Master of the organization.
