Jewish Side Accepts Wailing Wall Findings Since Verdict Does Not Allow of Appeal: but No Reason to R

The findings of the International Wailing Wall Commission do not satisfy completely the Jewish aspirations, and there is therefore no reason to rejoice. This is the view taken by the Executive of the Jewish Agency, the leaders of the Agudath Israel in Palestine and the Palestine Chief Rabbinate at a joint meeting held soon after the publication of the Wailing Wall Report, the J.T.A. learns. Since the verdict, however, does not allow of any appeal, the Jewish side accepts it, although the prohibition of the use of the Scrolls of the Law at the Wall on the Sabbath is greatly disappointing.
