The conclave, which will continue through Sunday, will deal with such issues as the renewal of religious tensions in Israel, the situation of Russian Jewry and the deterioration of traditional religious standards in American Jewish life. The convention will also adopt a program for the strengthening of religious observance and youth education in this country and in Israel.
