The three-day annual conference of the American council for Judaism concludes here last night after adopting a resolution declaring ?t the homeland of American Jews is America and that “our allegiance to the United States is single, indivisible and exclusive.”

Rejecting the concept that the Jews are homeless unless they live in Palestine, the Council pledged itself “to take such action as shall make clear that the Jews living outside of the proposed Zionist state have no part in the nationalism that state.” The resolution also provides that the Council make certain “that ?kesman, representatives, agencies and instrumentalities are precluded from representing all in American Jews.”

Another resolution urged Congress to pass the Stratton Bill for admission of ?placed persons to the United States.
