Several large Jewish world organizations, including Hadassah and B'nai B'rith International, indicated on Monday that they would not be complicit in the takeover of key Zionist institutions by right-wing and rigidly Orthodox political parties.

They made their position known in a sharply worded letter addressed to the leaders of the World Zionist Organization, just one day before the World Zionist Congress is scheduled to vote, as it does once every five years, on who will fill key positions and control key departments in these institutions.
