200 American Jews to Attend World Agudah Congress in Jerusalem

A delegation of some 200 rabbinic and lay leaders from the United States will attend the forthcoming fourth world congress of the Agudath Israel World Organization which will open in Jerusalem during the week of November 16, the Agudas Israel of America announced here today.

The organization will shortly launch a campaign to sell “selaim”–certificates–to help defray the costs of the congress and the American delegation. The world conference will review the policies of Orthodox Judaism on the vital policies of the day and will adopt a plan of action in behalf of Orthodox interests throughout the world.
