A two-day conference of the Leadership Training Fellowship, an organization of Jewish youth who are preparing themselves for careers of service to American Jewry, concluded here today. The parley, which was attended by More than 100 delegates from 17 eastern communities, was held at the Jewish Theological Seminary.

The conference adopted a three-point program in which the delegates urged that rabbis throughout the country seek out promising Jewish youth for enrollment in the Fellowship, that facilities for Jewish education above the grade school level be expanded and that Jewish teachers’ institutes be established in communities whose Jewish population is increasing.
