United Synagogue of America to Hold Biennial Convention in Washington in November

The 1950 biennial convention of the United Synagogue of America–the national organization of Conservative synagogues in the U.S.–will be held in Washington from Nov. 15-19, Judge Simon Rifkind, chairman of the group’s convention committee, announced today.

Results of a survey undertaken by the organization in cooperation with Columbia University–which will focus attention on the problems of synagogue attendance and synagogue youth work, as well as on the status of adult and primary education within the Conservative movement–will be made public at the convention, Judge Rifkind said.
