The purpose of the group, he said, will be to enlarge the base of the Jewish community within the Republican Party.
Also elected as executive committee members of the Coalition were: Richard Fox of Philadelphia, Gordon Zacks of Columbus, Ohio, George Klein of New York, Sylvia Hassenfeld of Providence, R.I., Ozzie Goren of Los Angeles, Norman Braman of Miami, and Albert Spiegel of Los Angeles.
