The United Palestine Appeal campaign for raising $2,500,000 to maintain rebuilding work in Palestine is under way today following issuance of a manifesto by campaign Leaders Leaded by Rabbi Stephen S. Wise calling upon communal leaders to launch their campaigns immediately.

The manifesto termed “the rebuilding of the Jewish national home the primary activity of the Jewish people.” It laid emphasis on the need for immediate funds to aid in transferring German Jews to Palestine.
