Announce Resolution by Rabbinical Assembly Lauding Palestine Work

The League for Labor Palestine makes public today the resolution adopted at the convention of the Rabbinical Assembly of the Jewish Theological Seminary held in Tannersville, N. Y., recently, in which the assembly praised the work of the Palestine labor movement.

The resolution reads as follows:

“We express our hearty appreciation of the contribution of the Labor movement, led by the Histadruth, to the rebuilding of the Jewish National Home in Palestine and the advancement of the ideal of a cooperative commonwealth.

“We, furthermore, urge a deeper consciousness of, and more sympathetic attitude towards, the rich tradition and religious heritage of Israel, which is basic to the social idealism of the Labor movement.

A copy of the resolution has been forwarded by the national office of the League to the executive committee of the Histadruth Haovdim, the Labor Federation in Palestine.
