Zionists from every part of New England are expected to attend the reception to be given to Dr. Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Zionist Organization, on Sunday evening, October 28, which will mark the launching of Boston’s United Palestine Appeal Campaign for 1928-29. More than 1500 persons will attend this reception, according to A. E. Wagman, Chairman of the Boston U.P.A. Campaign.

The results of the Jewish Agency Conference in New York City on October 20 and 21 will have its first tangible results when, it is expected, numerous non-Zionists will attend the opening of the Boston Drive. Preliminary efforts for stimulating interest in the campaign include the observation of “Palestine Sabbath,” which has, been proclaimed throughout New England for Friday evening, October 26, and Saturday morning, October 27. Rabbis throughout the territory will preach on Palestine during those two days.

A rally of workers for the Boston Campaign was held on October 25, which was addressed by Dr. I. M. Rubinow, Executive Director of the United Palestine-Appeal. An announcement that was greeted with enthusiasm by the campaign workers was that the Boston Chapter of Hadassah had unanimously adopted a resolution to enter into the United Palestine Appeal Campaign, as in previous years.
