Belgrade (Jan. 11)
The Grand Rabbi of Jugo-Slavia, Dr. Isaac Alkalay, has been appointed a member of the Senate by King Alexander, who has nominated 30 of the 48 Senators comprising the first Senate of the country.
Even if my appointment as a Senator is an act of personal recognition, Dr. Alkalay said to the J.T.A. representative to-day at the opening meeting of the Senate, and is not in recognition of the Grand Rabbi of Jugo-Slavia, it is nevertheless a high distinction and in a way a recognition of Jugo-Slavian Jewry.
Grand Rabbi Alkalay is the only Jewish member of the Jugo-Slavian Parliament, Upper or Lower House.
