Representatives of the World Union for Progressive Judaism arrived here yesterday for a special regional conference to study the relationship of Reform Judaism in Latin America to the general situation of Jews in those countries. The delegation is headed by Dr. Jacob K. Shankman, president of the World Union, and Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath, president of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations.

The visitors were welcomed by the Latin American branch of the Jewish Congress at a reception addressed by Dr. Shankman and Mark Turkow, secretary of the WJ Congress here.
