Several hundred delegates of Jewish organizations of New York met on April 15 in the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society Building, 425 Lafayette Street, to make arrangements for the election of delegates to the second session of the permanent American Jewish Congress. The meeting was called by the New York Jewish Council of which Judge Aaron J. Levy is Chairman.

The city was divided into districts and special committees were named to arrange nominating conventions in each of these districts. The Jews of the city will elect, by popular vote, 100 representatives to the Congress. Each Jew and Jewess in the city 21 years of age, will be entitled to a vote.
