The White House announced today that Dr. Louis Finkelstein, chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (Conservative) in New York, will preside Sunday at religious services in the East Room. The sacred music will be furnished by Christ Lutheran Church here. The rabbi’s participation marks the inclusion of Judaism as one of the faiths involved in the series of interfaith services.
