Download PDF for this date

A number of resolutions pledging aid in the upbuilding of Palestine and providing for the establishment of a committee to carry on educational work in this country were adopted Monday evening at the closing session of the Zeire-Agudath Israel convention held at the Broadway Central Hotel.

The convention also decided to begin a drive for new members, particularly among young people, to work for Sabbath observance, kashruth and the New York yeshivahs.

New officers elected at the closing session include Isaac Strahl, president; Israel Widerkehr, vice-president; Meyer Sanft and Morris Berman, secretaries, and M. Glick, treasurer.
