Dr. Angelo Saceroti, chief rabbi of Italy, sharply criticized the American Jewish organization for opposing the world congress which, he declared, would utterly destroy the legend of a “secret Jewish internationale.”

Faith in the future of the Jews and defiance of enemies characterized the concluding session, which unanimously and enthusiastically adopted the highly important resolutions placed before the conferences by the various committees.
