The Prussian Federation of Traditionally Observant Synagogue Congregations and the Halberstadt Federation of Traditionally Observant Jewish Communities in Germany, will not join the newly formed Federation of Jewish Communities in Germany because of religious differences, it was decided at a conference held this week at Fulda. They decided, however, to cooperate with it from time to time in questions of common concern.

Rabbi Auerbach of Halberstadt, who was in the chair, paid tribute to the memories of Dr. Breuer, Professor Marx and Dr. Adolph Stern.

In relations with the Government, the report submitted to the conference said, both Jewish Federations of Communities are legally recognized and the Government always shows understanding for the needs of the traditionally observant Jews.

Rabbi Munk of Berlin delivered an address on the Shechita question.
