Lipsky Impressed with Increased Settlement of American Jews in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

American Jews are arriving in Palestine in increasing numbers to settle in the country. This was the impression of Louis Lipsky, chairman of the Zionist Organization of America, who has just concluded his first visit to Palestine. Many new colonies have been established by the Palestine Foundation Fund and it is the conclusion of Mr. Lipsky that the whole country can be reclaimed by the system of cooperative colonization as well as individual ownership.

Palestine is now prepared for intensive colonization and it is the intention of Mr. Lipsky, who left for London today on his way to New York, to urge the leaders of the American Emergency Committee on Jewish Refugees to direct the refugees to Palestine, which is at present highly suitable for immigration. This achievement is due to the work of the Palestine Foundation Fund and the Jewish National Fund, the two main instruments of the Zionist Organization in the rebuilding of Palestine.

The headquarters of the Zionist Organization, especially those of the Palestine Foundation Fund, ought to be speedily transferred to Jerusalem, Mr. Lipsky stated.
