Washington (Nov. 25)
During the past nine years the Seaboard Zionist Region has raised for various Zionist purposes the sum of $1,232,500, of which amount Baltimore gave $760,500. This was reported by Simon J. Levin, executive secretary of the Region, at its midyear conference held here Sunday at the Jewish Community Center. This sum, said Mr. Levin, is exclusive of all private investments made in Palestine by individuals in the Region.
Resolutions condemning the British White Paper and the Simpson Report, welcoming Mr. Ussisshkin, president of the Jewish National Fund, on his forthcoming visit to this country and pledging the Seaboard Zionist Region to raise $30,000 for the Jewish National Fund within the coming year were adopted at the conference. Simon Land, Treasurer of the Region, gave a report on its financial status.
The conference was addressed by Jacob de Haas and Bernard Stone, the latter being executive field director of the Jewish National Fund. More than seventy-five representatives from practically all of the most important centers in the five states comprising the Seaboard Zionist Region attended the conference.
