The setting up of a Joint Committee of the Zionist Federations of Europe was the question dealt with at a conference held here yesterday of representatives of the Zionist Federations of Austria, Congress Poland, Eastern Galicia, Western Galicia, Czecho-Slovakia, Transylvania and Jugo-Slavia. The Zionist Federations of Germany, France, Old Roumania, Hungary, Lithuania and Switzerland sent messages welcoming the idea of such a Joint Committee. A message was also received from the Zionist Executive.
The President of the Zionist Committee in Austria, Dr. Leo Goldhammer, who opened the conference, outlined the purposes of the proposed Joint Committee. A debate took place in which the various points of view were expressed. A resolution was un-unanimously adopted welcoming the proposed establishment of a Joint Committee of the Zionist Organizations of Europe, and urging the need of an inter-territorial propaganda activity, to be carried on by means of an exchange of speakers and the application of modern propaganda methods through a central body to be established in agreement with the Zionist Executive.
