Polish Zionists End Sessions in Split

Download PDF for this date

The Polish Zionist conference concluded here today with a split, when the Et Libnoth, a General Zionist party, walked out of the meeting refusing to participate in the elections for a new central committee. The only group left in the conference was the Al Mishmar party, headed by Isaac Gruenbaum, head of the immigration department of the Jewish Agency for Palestine.

The Gruenbaum group is now isolated entirely from the General Zionist movement, having refused during the conference even to send a message of greeting to the General Zionist conference which closed last night at Krakow. It is held to be unlikely that the Gruenbaum group will join the new World Union of General Zionists and submit to party discipline.
