Five hundred delegates attended the sessions of the Jewish youth conference held under the auspices of the Jewish Educational Association at Temple Emanu-El-B’ne Jeshurun in this city. This was the first session of its kind ever held in Wisconsin. It is planned to hold it annually.

Among the speakers was Dr. Jacob Singer, Rabbi of Temple Mizpah of Chicago, and Rabbi Joseph Baron of Temple Emanu-El-B’ne Jeshurun.

The question of Jewish youth and his relation to the preservation of Jewish culture was discussed by Rabbi Aaron Cohen, Racine, and Dr. J. Mark Jacobson, of the University of Wisconsin. Henry Hurwitz, of New York, founder of the Intercollegiate Menorah Association, spoke at the opening session.
