Download PDF for this date

A resolution not to participate in the next World Zionist Congress was adopted today at the conference of the Bnai Benjamin, organization of Palestine-born Jewish farmers.

The conference decided at the same time to remain within the ranks of the Zionist Organization. More than 100 delegates participated in the conference, which closed today after a two days’ session in the colony Nathania. A representative of the Palestine government was present at the convention, which was also attended by prominent Jews of Palestine.
