March 2, 1926

(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Preparations are being made for the fourteenth annual convention of the United Synagogues of America to be held here on April 18 and 19. It will be a notable gathering and will bring together some of the foremost Jews of the United States and Canada. The delegates, of whom more than 700 are expected, will represent about 200 various synagogues.

President Coolidge has signified his pleasure of meeting the delegates in Washington, following the convention here. Washington Jewry will escort the delegates to the Capital City where sessions will be resumed after the visit to the White House.

Probably the most important of the questions to be considered at the convention here will be the adoption of a uniform prayer book for all Orthodox congregations and the proposed establishment of a Jewish Center and synagogue in Jerusalem. Orthodox Jewry never have had a modern synagogue in the Holy City.
