Injunction Invoked to Restrain Kehillah from Aiding Palestine Fund

Jewish Telegraphic Agency

The Austrian civil law was invoked to prevent the Viennese Kehillah, the Jewish communal board, from making its contribution to the Keren Hayesod, the Palestine Foundation Fund.

A complaint was brought by a group of Viennese Jewish citizens, leaders of the assimilationist group and opponents of Zionism, against the recent decision of the Kehillah to allot out of the Kehillah fund a contribution to the Keren Hayesod.

The complainants demand that the Kehillah treasury be reimbursed for this contribution, that the board be removed and that a governmental commissioner be appointed to supervise the expenditure of the board.
