United Synagogue Parley Votes
Final May Session in Jerusalem

KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y.
(JTA)—Delegates to the biennial
convention of the United Syna-
gogue of America,' the congtega-
tional arm 'of Conservative Juda-
ism, decided to reconvene for a
final session in Jerusalem next
May 31.
The biennial convention ended
here last week.
The final ses-
sion in Jeru-
salem will lol-
1 o w immedi-
ately after the
three-day' con-
ference of the
World Council
of Synagogues
with which the
United S y n a-
gogue is affili-
ated.
The princi-
pal speaker
Maislem
last week was Binyamin. Eliav, Is-
rael's Consul General in New
York. He told the 1,200 delegates
that Israel needs American Jews
"not only as tourists but as the
bearers of your ideas. We need
the freshness of your approach,
which is so ingenious in main-
taining traditional Judaism in a
way that conforms with modern
life."
The delegates in a resolution
urged the United States Govern-
ment to make inquiries of the
Soviet Unibn as to the basis of
the arrests and sentences of
Jewish community leaders in
Moscow and Leningrad under cir-
cumstances suggesting they were
being persecuted as Jews.'

The convention also endorsed
the creation of a forester village
in the Freedom Forest of the
Jewish National Fund in Israel,
representing t h e Conservative
movement's contribution to land
reclamation in Israel.
Lay leaders of congregations
in the United Synagogue of
America will now be required to
be' able to read Hebrew and par-
ticipate in worship service. They
will also be required to attend
services regularly. These pro-
visions also were spelled out in
resolutions adopted by the' bi-
ennial convention. Laymen who
do not qualify for election be-
cause of these provisions must
undertake a study program be-
fore they are -.eligible to serve
in an official capacity.
In addition, members elected
to synagogue boards of trustees
will be required to pursue a pro-
gram of individual s
direct-
ed towards increa in

tery. of Judaica
