Ronald Lauder, chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, said the summit to discuss the crisis in the Middle East would likely be held within the next two weeks in Jerusalem. Several hundred Jewish leaders from around the world have already expressed interest in attending, he said.
