The International Conference of Christians and Jews concluded its parley here today after adopting a series of resolutions urging religious tolerance throughout the world.

Meanwhile, it was reported in Zurich today that the Jewish birth rate in Switzerland, which since 1939 was on a continued decline, has shifted and is now on the increase. Jewish births in 1946 and 1947 showed an increase of 2.8 and 1.9, respectively.
