World Congress of Jewish Students to Be Held in Palestine Next Year

Download PDF for this date

A decision to call a World Congress of Jewish Students to be held in Palestine in 1933, was adopted last night at the closing session of the Conference of Jewish students in Palestine and of Jewish students from various countries who are now in Palestine in connection with the recent Maccabiade, the Levant Fair and the Passover pilgrimage.

A resolution was adopted calling for the conversion of the Hebrew University into a regular University, providing full University education in all Faculties, and conducted in the Jewish national spirit, in accordance with the decision of the last Zionist Congress.

The Conference decided to send greetings to the Jewish students at the European universities “who are defending themselves against hooligan attacks”.

Another resolution adopted by the Conference demands the maintenance of the Haifa Technicum as a Polytechnic.
