B’nai B’rith Youth Commission Urges Emergency Conference on Jewish Youth

A national emergency conference on Jewish youth that would involve leaders of Jewish communities throughout North America has been proposed by the B’nai B’rith Youth Commission, policy making body of the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization. The Commission asked the Supreme Lodge of B’nai B’rith to consider calling together such a meeting as part of a massive effort to counteract “growing alienation from Jewish values and the consequent increase of anti-Israel influence among youth.”
