German Mizrachi Threatens Split in Ranks of World Mizrachi

Download PDF for this date

A split in the ranks of the Mizrachi, Orthodox Zionist Party, is threatened as a result of a resolution adopted here today at the conference of the German Mizrachi organization. The resolution declares for an open fight against the World Mizrachi and demands a complete change in the political, financial and organizational orientation.

Should the forthcoming World Mizrachi conference decline to accede to these demands the German Mizrachi is prepared to organize a world union of its own in which the Swiss Mizrachi, it is believed, would join. Rabbi Meier Berlin of Jerusalem is head of the World Mizrachi.
