That the separation of the Jew from his religion would bring about his destruction as a people, was the declaration made by Dr. H. G. Enclow, rabbi of Temple Emanu-EI, New York City, president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, in his message before the fortieth annual convention of that body here. Despite the many efforts to break down religion on the part of scientists, liberals, and others, there still exists a demand for it, Dr. Enelow declared. The Jews, however, he pointed out, have only survived as a group because of their adherence to Judaism; otherwise, he asked, would there have been a single Jew in the world today?

Three hundred and fifty Reform rabbis from various parts of the country are in attendance at the convention here. In addition to marking the fortieth anniversary of the organization of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the meeting also celebrated its founding in this city.
