World Union Parley Reviews the Growth of Progressive Judaism

Irving Warshawsky Dead

LONDON (JTA) — The recent
growth and development of Re-
form J u d a ism in many areas
around the globe, outside the Un-
ited States and Canada, was re-
viewed as the governing council of
the World Union for Progressive
Judaism held its semi-annual meet-
ing here this week.
Twelve countries, including the
U.S., are represented at the par-
ley, among the delegates being Re-
form leaders from Israel, France,
Panama, South Africa, West Ger-
many and Sweden.
The report on Israel showed
that there are now six Progres-

HACKENSACK, N.J. (JTA) —
Irving Warshawsky, executive di-
rector of the Bergen County
Young Men's Hebrew Association,
died here July 4 of a heart ailment

Anniversary Will Mark
Rabbi's Release in '27
From Soviet Union Prison

The miraculous liberation of
Rabbi Joseph Isaac Schneersohn
from Soviet prison, 38 years ago,
will be marked here on the 12th of
Tammuz, July 12.
Despite vicious and relentless
attempts to eradicate Judaism in
Russia, Rabbi Schneersohn defied
the warnings of his adversaries
and led the Jews there in raising
a loyal Torah-true generation. He
was imprisoned and sentenced to
death.
On the third of Tammuz, 5687
(1927), Rabbi Schneersohn was re-
leased from the notorious Spalerno
prison in Leningrad, after 18 days
of confinment, and was exiled to
Kostroma, a small town in the
Urals. But here again, giving way
to high level diplomatic pressure,
the late Rebbe was released nine
days later, on his 47th birthday,
on the 12th of Tammuz.
Rabbi Schneersohn arrived to
establish residence in the United
States in 1940.
During his ten years in the
United States, till his passing in
1950, he established his educa-
tional program.
At Lubavitch world headquart-
ers, 770 Eastern Parkway, Brook-
lyn, Rabbi Schneersohn's succes-
sor and son-in-law, the incumbent
Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Mena-
chem M. Schneerson, will deliver
a special public address at 9:15
p.m. July 12.

sive congregations in the Jewish
state, a new synagogue is in the
process of formation, and the
Reform youth movement is grow-
ing. But more Reform rabbis and
larger funds for the growth of
the Reform trend in Israel were
reported as a necessity.
The Latin American r e p o r t
showed that the long-established
Reform congregations are contin-
uing their activities in Argentina,
Panama and Curacao; a second
congregation was established last
January in Argentina; and new
congregations have been formed
recently in Brazil and Guatemala.
For the first time, the World Un-
ion has assigned a Reform rabbi
to Mexico.

Delicatessen Owner
Mrs. Lefkofsky Dies

Broadway Market delicatessen
owner Mrs. Lillian Lefkofsky died
Monday at age 75.
Operator of the Harry Lefkof-
sky Delicatessen with her husband
from 1912 to his death in 1928,
she took over the business in that
year. Her famous corned-beef
sandwiches were well known to
executives and judges in the area,
and she had a collection of pic-
tures given by celebrity customers.
She saved the collection when
fire swept the market in 1961.
Mrs. Lefkofski, 7493 Cornwall
Ct., Birmingham, leaves a daugh-
ter, 'Mrs. Maxine Piaseczny: two sis-
ters, Mrs. Florence Wheeler and
Ann Cohen; five grand-children and
four great-grandchildren.

In Great Britain and Ireland,
another report showed, there are
more than 40 congregations affili-
ated with the World Union. In
France, three congregations are
functioning. Holland boasts three
Reform congregations, and other
Reform congregations were report-
ed functioning in Italy, Sweden,
Switzerland and West Berlin.
Nine World Union congregations
were reported continuing their
growth in Australia and New Zea-
land. Fifteen "vigorous" World
Union congregations were report-
ed as located in South Africa and
Rhodesia.
