Begin Celebration of “plestine Week”

Download PDF for this date

Observation of “Palestine Week” arranged under the auspices of the Friedlander Educational Conference is beginning tomorrow in Jewish Youth Institutions including such organizations as Young Judea, the League of Jewish Youth, Young People’s Synagogues, Y.M.H.A.’s Y.W.H.A.’s, etc.

Every member of a Jewish institution or club is to be urged to provide the small sum necessary for planting a tree in his or her name in Palestine, thus contributing to the rehabilitation of the land. Another plan is to interest the Jewish Youth to provide the Chaluzim Palestine with such things as music records, books and athletic material. The Zionist Organization, the Keren Hayesod, and the Palestine Development Council are all interested in the work of the Conference.
