C.o.j.o. Leaders Meet in London; Approve Abolishment of Veto

A meeting of the officers of the Conference of Jewish Organizations (COJO) ended today with approval of the new COJO constitution abolishing the veto formerly held by each of the ten participant groups.

The announcement of the decision was made by Dr. William Wexler, COJO co-chairman and president of the B’nai B’rith. He also reported that the officers decided to hold the next session of COJO in Geneva next July. He said he expected the July meeting to take another forward step by establishing cooperation for a better interchange of data and other material, and for more effective activity generally. Dr. Nahum Goldmann presided.
