Goodman, political secretary of the organization, disclosed ##at consultations with the Jewish Agency are being held in Jerusalem regarding joint ##tion on the future status of the city. The World Agudah is demanding that the Jewish religious community of Jerusalem retain its independence and not be considered ##rt of the Jewish community of the new Jewish state, so that it may deal with the U.N. -appointed municipal authorities as an independent entity.
