Download PDF for this date

Plans for a non-profit making Palestine Tour, designed to enable its members to see Palestine from the inside, have just been completed by the American Economic Committee for Palestine, Israel B. Brodie, the Committee’s president, announced yesterday. This tour, Mr. Brodie stated, will leave New York for Naples on the S.S. Conte de Savoia on July 8, proceeding on the S.S. Esperia to Jaffa, which will be reached on July 19. The tour will spend thirty days in visiting all parts of the Holy Land. It will depart on the S.S. Ganges from Jaffa for Naples on August 17 and will reembark at Naples on the S.S. Conte di Savoia, which will arrive in New York on August 31.

The tour has been arranged especially to meet the requirements of students and teachers. Every phase of Palestine development—agricultural, industrial, educational, social and religious—will be studied during the trip.
