The second session of the American Jewish Conference will be held in Pittsburgh, Pa. and will open on December 3, it was announced here today by the administrative committee of the Conference.

Originally it was intended to hold the second session in Chicago over the Labor Day week-end, but a ninety day postponement was voted by the Interim Committee in June, in compliance with the request of the Office of Defense Transportation.

The Interim Committee met this week in New York to consider the agenda for the second session. On the unfinished business from the first session is the selection of a delegation to represent American Jewry at the Peace Conference.
