The amount, $25,000 to $30,000, will be available for the J. N. F. following the death of the late Zionist’s widow. In making the announcement, Emil Steinbach, president of the fund, and Max Engelberg, chairman, stated that part of the money would be used to help pay for 250 acres of land purchased in Palestine last year by the local committee.
