New York (Mar. 13)
Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein, president of the Synagogue Council of America, announced today that in response to an urgent appeal from French Jewry, the Council, representing the Orthodox, Conservative and Reform rabbinic and congregational bodies in the United States, has initiated a plan to help in the religious rehabilitation of France.
In accordance with this plan, the Council has requested Jewish communities throughout the United States to “adopt” the Jewish religious communities of France and aid in the restoration of their religious life to full strength and dignity. When this project is completed, the Council will then launch a similar campaign for other Jewish communities in Europe.
