Synagogue Council Asks Jewish Representatives at San Francisco to Hold Joint Meeting

The Synagogue Council of America announced today that it has appealed to representatives of all Jewish organizations at San Francisco to hold a joint conference to “consider the basic needs of Jewry and the recommendations upon which they may all agree.”

The council disclosed that in response to an invitation from the State Department, its president, Rabbi Herbert Goldstein, and Rabbi Ahron Opher, have left for San Francisco where they will act as consultants on Jowish religious matters to the American delegation.

The Agudas Israel announced, at the same time, that it is sending a group of representatives to San Francisco who will also act as consultants on Jewish religious affairs to the U.S. delegation. The Agudah representatives will be headed by Dr. Jacob Rosenheim, president of the world Agudas Israel organization.
