A community-wide conference to review the intermarriage problem, analyze its effect on American Jewry at present, and explore methods for future action to deal with the issue, will be held here Sunday, it was announced today. The announcement was made by the sponsoring organizations, which include the Associated Synagogues of Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Board of Rabbis, the Vaad Harabonim of this state, and the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation.

Hirsh Sharf, vice-president of the Associated Synagogues, who will be general chairman of the conference, announced that three sessions will be held by the assembly. They will be addressed by prominent Jewish scholars and educators, religious leaders and others “qualified to speak on the subject of intermarriage.” Stressing “the seriousness of the situation,” the sponsoring organizations noted that the entire Jewish community must be vitally concerned in coping with the problem.
