Download PDF for this date

The appointment of Dr. Samuel Margoshes, editor of The Day, as chairman of the Commission on Organization of the American Jewish Congress was announced yesterday by Dr. Stephen S. W#se, president.

An intensive organizational campaign to extend the Congress movement in a number of the larger Jewish communities of the East and Middle West will be conducted in the course of the next six weeks, according to a decision reached at the initial meeting of the organization commission.

Provisional committees will be set up in each of the communities to function until the Fall, when democratic city-wide conventions will be held for the election of permanent officers and the formulation of the basic program of the various units.

A sub-committee has been named to prepare a constitution for the local Congress units which will establish the functions of the latter and regulate their relationship within the national organization.
