A national conference of Jewish legionnaires who served in Palestine during the World War will take place November 2nd and 3rd, at the Irving Plaza Hall, New York City. Delegates from cities in the United States and Canada are expected to attend.

The conference has been called to further the organization of legionnaires and volunteers for constructive work in Palestine and to prepare the ground for the launching of a campaign for the establishment of legionnaires’ colonies in Palestine.

The first session will be addressed by Judge Gustave Hartman, Jacob de Haas and Dr. S. Margoshes, the American Palestine Jewish Legion announces.
