Dr. Joseph Krimsky, well known New York physician, was elected president of the Jewish National Fund of America, the Zionist Agency for the purchase of Palestine soil as the inalienable property of the Jewish people.

Dr. Krimsky’s election to the post formerly held by Bernard A. Rosenblatt, was brought about by the unanimous consent of the various factions which participate in the collections for the fund and are represented on its board.
