The convention endorsed the Order Aleph Zadi Aleph, the junior organization of the B’nai B’rith, and recommended the establishment of a kosher kitchen at the Orphan’s Home in Atlanta, Ga., when practical.

C., first vice-president; Marcus Eudel of Jacksonville, Fla., second vice-president; Edwin L. Levy of Richmond, Va., secretary; Sigmund Steruherger of Greensboro, N. C., treasurer. The general committee comprises the officers and William Goodhart of Baltimore, Md., Julius Reis of Washington, D. C., Alvin B. Hutzler of Richmond, Va., Marcus W. Jacobi of Wilmington, N. C., and E. H. Abrahams of Savannah, Ga.
