Wailing Wall Commission Going to London First

Download PDF for this date

The international Wailing Wall Commission which spent several weeks in Jerusalem investigating the Jewish and Moslem claims to the Wailing Wall is proceeding to London before going to Geneva, it is learned here. The members of the Commission will presumably not formulate any verdict immediately but will meet later at a fixed place for the purpose of passing judgment on the evidence they heard. In the meantime each one of the three members will probably draft a separate conclusion.

Dr. Cyrus Adler, a member of the administrative committee of the Jewish Agency and author of the memorandum on the Wailing Wall submitted to the Commission at its opening session, has arrived here, probably to appear before the Commission after its return to Geneva.
