The fiftieth anniversary of the Katowice conference, at which the Choveve Zion, pioneer Zionist group, was founded, was celebrated here at a mass meeting called by the Brith Harishonim, pioneer Jewish settlers in Palestine. The guest of honor was R. Zerach Barnett, a Palestine resident and one of the organizers of the Kattowice conference.
