J.N.F. and Mizrachi Agree on Sabbath

Download PDF for this date

The World Executive of the Mizrachi organization here has expressed its satisfaction with the successful outcome of negotiations between the directorate of the Jewish National Fund and the Mizrachi in connection with the introduction of the Sabbath observance clause in all J.N.F. lease contracts.

The Mizrachi deplores the fact that such matters should be of necessity discussed but the hope prevails that the settlers will comply with the demand for Sabbath observance. The Mizrachi is prosecuting plans for a universal observance of the Sabbath in all spheres of the Holy Land.
