Download PDF for this date

A big effort on behalf of the Jewish National Fund has been launched here at a big gathering of Johannesburg Zionists. A donation of £1,000 was given by Mr. M. Haskel. A resolution was adopted declaring the determination of Johannesburg Jewry to assist in carrying out its part of the pledge given by South African Jewry to raise a sum of £75,000 for the purchase of land in Palestine as the inalienable possession of the Jewish people.
