Liberals Win Majority in Stockholm Jewish Community Elections

Download PDF for this date

Elections to the Stockholm Jewish community were won today by a slate of Liberals who captured 15 of the 25 seats on the community council. Six others went to a “Living Judaism” bloc consisting chiefly of Zionists, while an Orthodox slate four seats. Percentage wise, the results were similar to those in the last community election, in 1952.
