Synagogue Council Acclaims Truman (Vol. 14, Issue 13)
“President Truman’s consecration to liberal ideals will ever be an inspiration for all people seeking justice in the world,” the Yeshiva University Synagogue Council said in a resolution adopted by the thirteenth annual convention, held at Yeshiva on Sunday, May 22. The resolution expressed the Council’s heartiest felicitations to the President “for his determination and untiring efforts in effecting our nation’s foreign policy with respect to the establishment of the Jewish State.”
In six other resolutions adopted at the convention, attended by 400 representatives of member synagogues in the Greater New York area, the Council pledged its wholehearted co-operation to their heroic brethren in Israel, urged American Jews to devote their concerted efforts to the support of institutions of Jewish learning, called upon American Jews to affiliate themselves actively with traditional synagogues, urged the expansion of the all-day school system, and extended an invitation to the 1,200 synagogues affiliated with the Council throughout the nation to participate in Yeshiva University’s Dedication Week.
