United Ashkenazic Community to Be Started in Mexico

A united Ashkenazic community will be proclaimed here on January 1, 1957, following months of negotiation among representatives of all parties within the community.

A declaration of principles for the newly organized community has already been signed. Basis for the new organization will be the already-existing communal group known as “Nidche Israel,” which will be broadened to include representation for all groups not previously included. Included among those who have accepted the new understanding are Zionists, Bundists, religious groups and unaffiliated persons.

The new community’s budget will provide for all educational, relief and communal organizations within the Ashkenazic sector of the Mexican Jewish community. The budget for 1957 will involve an estimated three million pesos.
