Leaders of the French Federation of the World Jewish Congress met here today for a two-day series of conferences to analyze and discuss the present situation and the future of Algerian Jews. The principal aim is to attempt to help Algerian Jewry in mapping its actions in the near future, as a result of the negotiations between France and leaders of the Algerian Moslem independence movement in regard to the future of Algeria. Among the participants in the conferences are Dr. Nahim Goldmann, president of the World Jewish Congress, and Walter Eytan, Israeli Ambassador to France.

Jacques Lazarus, World Jewish Congress representative in Algiers, is here to report to the federation about the current situation in Algeria, while other reports will deal with the Franco-Algerian negotiations at Evian. After the conference, it is believed, Dr. Goldmann will meet with Louis Joxe, French Minister for Algerian Affairs, who is this country’s chief negotiator at the Evian talks, to review the future prospects of the Algerian Jewish community.
