Jewish Leadership Coming to Fore in Latin America, Rabbi Wohl Declares

Jewish leadership in Latin American countries is coming to the fore and there is intensive activity in every Jewish community there, Rabbi Samuel Wohl, of the B’nai Yeshurun congregation here, and a prominent American Zionist labor leader, declared today following his return from a three-month tour of Latin America where he studied Jewish political and cultural life and institutions.

During his trip he conferred with a number of foreign ministers and American ambassadors on various Jewish problems. He found a “tremendous eagerness” on the part of all Latin American Jewish leaders to have more frequent contact with the Jewish community of the United States.
