Berlin Paper Defines Hebrew Words for Jews

The Juedische Rundschau, the weekly organ of the German Zionists, has introduced a new department giving definitions and explanations of words and phrases concerning Jewish life and organizations. In introducing the new feature, the editors explain that the paper has recently acquired a number of new readers, many of whom have heretofore been remote from Jewish life, and it was these who asked for explanations of such words. Among the definitions in the first set presented were: Jewish Agency for Palestine, Vaad Leumi, K’neseth Israel, Asefath Hanivcharim, Keren Hayesod, Keren Kayemeth, Yishub, Chalutz, Tarbuth, Aliya, Moshaba, Kevutza,
