Colony of Converted Jews Will Settle in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

A Hebrew-Christian colony is soon to be established in Palestine. A tract of land for this purpose has already been acquired with funds supplied from London. The settlement will be located near Gaza.

Orange groves are being planted and houses constructed for the colonists. A church, the only church built exclusively for converted Jews in the world, will be built in the colony.
