Investments in Nathanyah Exceed Million Dollars

Download PDF for this date

The development of Nathanyah, an American-Palestine colony, represents one million dollars, according to a statement made at the annual Conference of the Jewish Farmers Federation of Palestine. Due to the influx of Jewish capital from Poland, Germany and the United States, about 2,000 additional dunams of land are being planted with citrus fruit there this spring, including some 400 dunams for American prospective settlers.

The Hanotaiah Colonization Agency, founders of Nathanyah, have also developed there a modern residential colony housing 500 settlers and workers, facing the Mediterranean Sea. It is proposed to build there another Jewish seacoast town, paralleling Tel-Aviv. As the key to the Sharon citrus belt, Nathanyah received a concession of three miles of beach by the Government of Palestine for the purpose of developing such a town between Tel-Aviv and the port of Haifa, further north.
