Jewish Education Conference Postponed to Avert Conflict with “loan to Israel” Parley

The first National Conference on Jewish Education, scheduled for October 28-30 under the sponsorship of the American Association for Jewish Education with the cooperation of 32 major national Jewish groups, has been postponed to avert conflict with a special emergency National Planning Conference for Israel and Jewish Rehabilitation, to be held on the same week-end in Washington, according to a joint announcement released today by Dr. Nahum Goldmann, chairman of the Planning Conference committee, and Michael A. Stavitsky, president of the Association.

The education conference, which approximately 1,000 delegates representing all Jewish communities and major organizations are expected to attend, will be held at the Hotel Biltmore, New York, on January 13 and 14, 1951, the announcement said. It will be the first delegated nationwide discussion on the institutions and programs of Jewish education in America.
