Plan J. N. F. Mass Campaign As Reply to Simpson Report

Download PDF for this date

A mass campaign on behalf of the Jewish National Fund is announced for November 2 by the Jewish National Council as a reply to the attack on the Fund in the report of Sir John Hope Simpson and which is echoed in the British statement of Palestine. The Jewish National Council summons the Jews throughout the world to double their gifts to the fund “that redeems the land of Israel as the eternal possession of the people of Israel.”

The Council calls on the Jews of the world to respond in a practical way to the attack “levelled against the most precious and the most popular institution of our people. The fund that redeems the land of our fathers is founded on righteousness and its activities on justice. The foundations of this national institution that serves as a central land organ of a nation are bound by countless bonds with the hearts of the masses of Israel in all countries of the dispersion and no power in the world can uproot them.”
