Complete Support of Weizmann Stand Keynote of Jewish Agency and National Council Program

Complete and unreserved support of Dr. Chaim Weizmann’s stand with regard to the British government will be the keynote of the program that the Executives of the Jewish Agency and the Jewish National Council will put before a joint meeting of both groups together with representatives of the Jewish community tonight. The program will be the basis of an immediate appeal to world Jewry in connection with the crisis precipitated in the Zionist movement.

The program will include an appeal from the Zionist Revisionists to world Jewry, as well as from all other groups, to enable the Jewish Agency to accelerate its economic program in Palestine, including the colonization of the Wadi Hawareth lands, the immediate realization of the 1,000 family plan. It will also urge Jewish employers in Palestine to strain all efforts to prevent unemployment.

Shortly after Col. Frederick Kisch, chairman of the Palestine Executive of the Jewish Agency, conferred with High Commissioner Chancellor, Pinchas Rutenberg, chairman of the Jewish National Council was received by the High Commissioner.
