Download PDF for this date

Charles Barde, the Swiss jurist, who is a member of the international Wailing Wall Commission which investigated the Moslem and Jewish claims to the Wailing Wall, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today that the first meeting of the Commission will be held next week at Stockholm.

At that meeting the Commission will examine the voluminous material representing the claims of Jews and Moslems to the Wall, and will then adjourn. A second meeting will be held during 1930 to formulate the conclusions of the Commission concerning the Wailing Wall controversy, M. Barde stated.
