A mid-summer Conference of leaders of Jewish National Fund work in the five boroughs of Greater New York will take place tonight at eight o’clock at the Imperial Hotel, Thirty-second street and Broadway. Leo Wolfson, chairman of the Jewish National Fund Council will preside.

The Conference will hear a report of Keren Kayemeth activities during the past six months, and will consider a number of plans for future work in behalf of the Zionist land redeeming agency. Particular interest centers around the forthcoming Ellul campaign and High Holiday drive which is annually conducted by the Jewish National Fund through the medium of blue-white stamps. Plans will also be considered for concluding the effort in New York City to raise $25,000 as New York Jewry’s contribution towards the $100,000 fund for Kfar Ussishkin. One-half of this sum has already been received.

A free round trip to Palestine will be raffled tonight among the volunteer workers who distinguished themselves in a recent fund raising effort.
