Young Israel Upsets Constituents

Young Israel Upsets Constituents

According to your article, “Young Israel Movement In Turmoil” (July 2), National Council of Young Israel refused to accept the resignation of a member shul in Syracuse that elected a female president, and now the National Council wants to take legal action aimed at seizing the congregation’s assets.
