Upper Motza Families Celebrate Settlement of New Jewish Workers

Download PDF for this date

A housewarming to celebrate the first residence of twenty Jewish labor families in Upper Motza, a community near here where houses have been built with the aid of the Vaad Leumi and emergency funds, has been held here. The houses are near the Arzah Sanatorium of the Histadruth Sick Fund. The new settlement will strengthen the old Jewish village which was the scene of attacks in the 1929 riots.
