A reception to members of the Free Synagogue will be held at American Jewish Congress House under the auspices of the Women’s Association of the American Jewish Congress tonight, it was announced yesterday by Mrs. Stephen S. Wise, president.

The reception will comprise a tour of inspection of Congress House, which will be opened officially in a short time for members of the Free Synagogue, through whose courtesy the building at 50 West Sixty-eighth street was made available.

The Free Synagogue has presented the building to the Women’s Association of the American Jewish Congress. Under the leadership of Mrs. Wise, the Women’s Association has converted the building into a social and recreational center for German refugees. In addition to all the varied uses of a social center, the institution will provide temporary residence for German refugees.

Dr. Eric Mosse, famous as Peter Flamm, the German novelist, will speak on conditions in Nazi Germany. Dr. Mosse will be a guest of Congress House.
