The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, an umbrella group representing various players in organized American Judaism, will “celebrate five decades of leadership and achievement” by its eight most recent past chairman at an upcoming gala dinner at New York’s Waldorf Astoria.

Melvin Salberg, Amb. Ronald S. Lauder, Mortimer B. Zuckerman, James S. Tisch, Harold Tanner, Alan Solow, Richard B. Stone, and the late June Walker are all to be honored for their leadership, which “helped shape the course of Jewish history,” the Conference of Presidents announced. Also to be honored is Malcolm Hoenlein, the Executive Vice Chairman/CEO, who has lead the organization for a quarter century.

The Conference of Presidents was established to represent over fifty national Jewish organizations in their dealings with the Eisenhower administration, which had expressed its desire for one central address in its dealings with American Jewry.
