Rabbis Urge Parley of Protestants. Catholics and Jews on Bible Reading in Schools

Declaring the recent State Supreme Court decision upholding the validity of Bible reading in the public schools now poses that debatable issue in a new light, the Rabbinical Council of New Jersey called for a joint conference of protestant, Catholic and Jewish clergymen for discussion purposes.

The Council hopes that such a joint conference “will arrive at a mutually satisfactory understanding with regard to the reading of the Lord’s Prayer and verses from the Old Testament, in the public schools of the state.”
