Download PDF for this date

An effort will be made to have Newark represented by a section of 5,000 trees in the George Washington Forest in Palestine, according to a decision at a conference here. Aaron Levinstone, prominent local Zionist, will act as Chairman, and the effort will be guided tentatively by the Jewish National Fund Council of Newark.

Mr. Levinstone will form an Advisory Committee of Communal Leaders immediately after the Community Chest Drive. Max Rudensky and Wm. Z. Spiegelman represented the Washington Forest Committee at the conference.
