The “Assicurazioni Generali,” an insurance company operating in fifty lands, has distributed the sum of £250 to leading Jewish and Arab causes in Palestine on the occasion of the celebration of the one hundred anniversary of its founding last month.

Of this sum £50 was assigned to the Hebrew University; £50 to the two chief rabbis of Palestine to be distributed among any Jewish organizations they see fit; £50 to the Moslem Supreme Council; £50 to the supreme Christian Ecclesiastic authority in Palestine.

Similar contributions were made to organizations in other lands where the company has branches.
