Chief Justice Warren Proposes Conference to Bridge ‘generation Gap’

Download PDF for this date

Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the United States, proposed here Sunday that the Herbert H. Lehman Institute of Ethics, a branch of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, invite students and faculty members to a conference that might lead to a bridging of the “generation gap.” Mr. Warren spoke at the Louis Marshall Award Dinner of the Seminary. He said that from the proposed conference “might emerge an international forum where young, middle-aged and even old among all people would participate regularly, meeting with one another, thinking with one another, striving together instead of against each other.” He warned that the gap between generations continually widens as the growth of scientific and technological knowledge accelerates.

Six community leaders received the Louis Marshall award in recognition of their continuing effort to “further the spiritual cultural and ethical well-being of the Jewish community.” They are: Lester F. Avnet, of Kings Point, L.I.; Harry K. Cohen, of Philadelphia; Nathan B. Kogan and Jacob S. Lasdon, of New York City; Matthew B. Rosenhaus of Morristown, N.J. and David Zucker of Great Neck, L.I.
