The organisation of non-Zionist Jewish social workers in Paris headed by Dr. M. Krainin, Joint-Director of the Ricem, and Mr. I. Yefroikin, formed recently for the purpose of assisting in the reconstruction of the Jewish National Home in Palestine, states that it has entered into contact with Jewish social workers in other countries with a view to undertaking a common activity on a large scale.

All Jews can take part in the work of the Federation, who on religious, national, cultural or social-economic grounds recognise the special importance of Palestine for the Jewish people in the past and at the present time, the statement says. In all questions save that of Palestine construction, general social and political, as well as specifically Jewish, cultural, lingual, Jewish rights, etc., the Federation takes no party attitude, and each member retains complete liberty of opinion and action. The Federation will assist the Jewish Agency in its Jewish colonisation work in Palestine in the broadest sense of the word, agriculture, industry, artisanship, trading and culture, as well as financial, while conducting a propaganda aiming at the gradual reconstruction of the non-Zionist section of the Jewish Agency on democratic lines.
