Sephardic Jews Ask More Consideration in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

A protest against the negative attitude of the Zionist Executive towards the demands of the Sephardic Jewish community in Palestine was contained in a cablegram of greetings sent to the Zionist Congress in Zurich by the World Sephardic Confederation, with headquarters in Jerusalem.

The Sephardic Confederation did not send delegates to the Congress, the protest declares, because of the treatment accorded it.

Conferences of Sephardic Jews in other eastern communities voiced the same protest in their cabled greetings to the Congress. They complained against inequality of treatment and demanded that the Congress repair the nijustices and take effective measures to safeguard the rights of the Oriental Jews living in Palestine.
