Download PDF for this date

Over three hundred Orthodox Jewish youths from all major cities in the United States and Canada will participate in the 29th annual national convention of Zeirei Agudath Israel of America, which will open here tomorrow at the King David Hotel. The deliberations will continue until Monday, and will be devoted to mapping a course of action for young Orthodox Jews in coping with religious problems in this country and in Israel. The delegates at this conclave of Zeirei Agudath Israel, which is the youth movement of Agudath Israel of America, will also chart a program to draw Jewish youth closer to traditional Judaism.
