The 27th annual convention of the Histadruth Ivrit, the organization promoting Hebrew in the United States, concluded here last night with an appeal to the Soviet Union to release Hebrew teachers and authors exiled to labor camps and to permit the establishment of Hebrew schools in the USSR.

The convention also adopted a number of resolutions dealing with the intensification of the teaching of Hebrew in Jewish schools in the United States, as well as supporting the Hebrew weekly “Hadoar” and the publication of Hebrew books in this country.
