The question of the suppression of all Jewish religious instruction in Soviet Russia was raised by Lucien Wolf, secretary of the Joint Foreign Committee, in his report submitted yesterday to the monthly meeting of the Angle-Jewish Board of Deputies.

The entire questions will be further considered at a special meeting of the Board when additional information will be received.

Concerning a proposal that the Joint Foreign Committee undertake to work in Russia in conjunction with the American Jewish Committee. Mr. Wolf declared that this is at present impossible in view of the fact that while the British government has recognized Soviet Russia, America has not granted its recognition.
