Pincus Affirms Cojo Plans to Improve Jewish Education

The World Conference of Jewish Organizations (COJO) has agreed to cooperate in efforts to raise the declining standards of Jewish education in the diaspora, Louis A. Pincus, chairman of the World Zionist Organization Executive, reported here. Pincus who just returned from the annual COJO meeting in Geneva, said his world-wide plan to improve Jewish education was unanimously adopted by the delegates.

He said the plan envisioned the reinforcement of COJO’s own education committee by representatives from all Jewish organizations active in the field of education. He said the enlarged committee will investigate the situation in each country in turn and propose comprehensive plans to improve and expand Jewish educational facilities.
