United Palestine Appeal Plans Work of Next Year

Download PDF for this date

Following a resolution unanimously adopted by representatives of all the funds associated in the United Palestine Appeal, plans are now being formulated for the continuation of the Appeal in the coming year and to conduct the work of next year’s campaigns. The plans are to be submitted for adoption by the bodies of the organizations that are united in the Appeal, a statement of the United Palestine Appeal headquarters declared.

Two committees, it is stated, are now at work. One headed by Isidore D. Morrison, is preparing plans for the permanent organization of the United Palestine Appeal. Mr. Morrison is a member of the Board of Directors of the Keren Hayesod and in the course of this year’s campaign, established a trust fund of $100,000 on behalf of the Keren Hayesod, National Fund and the Hebrew University. The Chairman of the other Committee is Emanuel Neumann, General Director of the United Palestine Appeal. Mr. Neumann’s committee is preparing plans for the campaigns next year.

The leaders of the Zionist funds are of the opinion that the United Palestine Appeal should be continued. The success of the Appeal this year as well as the economies which it has made possible, have removed whatever doubts existed at the beginning with regard to the advisability of the union of effort for Palestine which the United Palestine Appeal represents, the statement declared.
