Zionist Body Continues Zurich Sessions Another Day

Download PDF for this date

The actions committee of the World Zionist Organization tonight decided to continue its conference for another day.

During today’s session delegates heard reports from Isaac Gruenbaum, head of organization department of the Jewish Agency for Palestine and Dr. Arthur Hantke, head of the Keren Hayesod.

Meanwhile, the political committee kept up negotiations seeking the composition of a permanent Palestine political committee. The Jewish State Party, it was announced, has been recognized as a separate organization.

The committee prepared to issue a manifesto pointing out the injustice to Jews of Great Britain’s expected suspension of immigration into the Holy Land.

The economic section of the committee framed an appeal to Jews throughout the world to raise an emergency fund for Palestine.

David Ben-Gurion, chairman of the Palestine Executive of the Jewish Agency, left for London last night where he will remain a week before returning to Palestine.

The Women’s International Zionist Organization closing its three-day sittings here adopted a resolution to assist the actions committee’s campaign for a special emergency fund.
