A Jewish home named after Marshal Pilsudski will be built in Palestine by the Brith Trumpledor organization of Poland, in conjunction with the Brith Hachayil, the Revisionist military group, it was announced today.

Polish Jewry continued today to demonstrate their profound grief at Pilsudski’s death. Special services were held in the synagogues and innumerable telegrams of condolence were sent by Jewish organizations to the Palace. Among the messages of condolence was one from Vladimir Jabotinsky, Revisionist leader, and from all Jewish organizations and Jewish communities in the country.

The home to be built in Palestine will serve as a haven for Jewish emigrants from Poland.
