Legal Leaders to Help J.N.F. by Will Advice

A committee of jurists and prominent lawyers to aid the Jewish National Fund, the agency of the Zionist movement dedicated to the reclamation of the soil of Palestine as national property, has been formed, according to an announcement made yesterday by Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Fund.

Called the Advisory Bequest Committee, it includes many prominent legal lights and is headed by David L. Podell. Under his signature a letter was recently addressed to 2,000 members of the New York bar urging them in their fiduciary relations with their clients, particularly in the drawing up of last wills and testaments, to recommend to their clients the inclusion of the Jewish National Fund as a beneficiary of such charitable bequests as they might wish to make.
