The officers of the Jewish Conciliation Court of America are: Dr. Israel Goldstein, president; Mrs. Rebekah Kohut, Justice Jacob Panken and the Rev. Dr. Moses Hyamson, vice-presidents; Mrs. Mary Blum, treasurer; Louis Richman, executive secretary; and Bernard S. Deutsch, chairman of the board of directors.
