See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Council of Jewish Communities has joined the Central Jewish Committee, it was announced here today, following protracted negotiations. The new group will represent Polish Jewry both in matters affecting the internal life of the community and before the Polish Government.

Religious questions will continue to fall under the jurisdiction of the Council. The alliance of the two organizations provides that the Council also reserves the right to demand that all institutions run by the Central Committee be maintained on a Sabbath-observance basis.
