Voice Protest of Anti-yiddish Drive in Zion

A protest condemning the drive against the Yiddish language in Palestine was adopted here at a session of the Jewish community council. The protest will be forwarded to Palestine.

The protest states that measures to halt the anti-Yiddish drive must be taken in that country, where extremists seek to prevent publications in Yiddish. Several speakers at the council meetings also protested against spread of the Sabbath disregard in the Holy Land.

Recent anti-Yiddish acts in Palestine are widely discussed in the Jewish press here. It is pointed out that at this time, when thousands of immigrants are entering Palestine each month, they must not be deprived of use of their mother tongue until they acquire sufficient knowledge of Hebrew.
