Berlin (Sep. 9)
The Jewish Agency has proved to be a success in Roumania, Lazar Margulies, prominent Roumanian Zionist leader and a member of the Administrative Committee of the Jewish Agency, said today in an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The conciliatory and unifying idea as the underlying basis of the Jewish Agency has rallied new forces to the cause of Palestine in Roumania, M. Margulies declared, pointing out that Dr. William Filderman, president of the Union of Roumanian Jews and other non-Zionist personages, were vigorously participating in the work of upbuilding Palestine.
“I do not doubt that the Jewish Agency in other countries will also lead to similar results,” he said. “The upbuilding of Palestine is such a vast undertaking that the efforts of all Jewry are essential in order to rise to the historic task,” M. Margulies continued. “I feel a sincere admiration for Felix M. Warburg and for the earnestness, sincerity and tireless energy with which he is working for the cause of Palestine. If the Jewish Agency will be given time to develop its full potentialities, I am confident that we may expect a very essential acceleration in our work and the strengthening of our position,” he concluded.
