The first post-war conference of the Council of Jewish Communities in Bohemia-Moravia has concluded here after adopting a constitution in-corporating compromises reached at discussions among all factions of Czech Jewry. First Frischer was re-elected chairman.

The Council voted against selling unused synagogues to Christian congregations for use as churches. The delegates passed resolutions greeting the Czechoslovak government and leading Jewish organizations, including the Jewish Agency and the Joint distribution Committee.
