Sport Festiml in Jerusalem During Passover

The Maccabee World Organization has arranged a sport festival which is to take place in Jerusalem during the Passover holidays. This is the first time since the dispersal of the Jewish people to all parts of the globe that there will be an international gathering of Jewish youth in Jerusalem for the purpose of celebrating the holidays with sport and joy. Many guests and visitors are expected to arrive for the event and a miniature city of tents will be erected on the outskirts of Jerusalem for their accommodation. The Executive Committee of the Macabee World Organization informed the correspondent of the J.T.A. that all national Jewish sport organization s are entitled to participate.
