NEW YORK (Jun. 17)
Plans to strengthen the religious and democratic way of life will feature the discussions of the 12th annual convention of the Rabbinical Alliance of America, which opened here last night. More than 400 Orthodox rabbis are attending the two-day meeting.
The delegates also issued a call to Jews throughout the world to protest the persecution of Rumanian Jewish leaders and to mobilize world public opinion in a move to free the imprisoned leaders. It was also voted to send a commission headed by four rabbinical leaders to survey the religious and cultural situation in Israel and to confer with Israeli government and civil leaders in an effort to strengthen ties between Orthodox Jews in Israel and in this country.
