Mr. Jaffe, director of the Jewish Foundation Fund, stated that without the work of pioneers, aided by Jewish national capital, the development of Palestine would have been impossible and the country would never have been an asylum for hundreds of thousands of Jews.

“Jewish national capital,” said Mr. Jaffe, “has paved the way for private initiative. The Foundation Fund has already invested $8,000,000 in Palestine, but from now on our principal work will be in agriculture.”
