The passing of Meier Dizengoff evoked today expressions of sorrow from Jewish circles all over the world.

The London branch of the Jewish Agency for Palestine closed its offices during the morning as a sign of a mourning and lowed its flag to half-mast. A special convocation to commemorate his death is being arranged under the auspices of the Agency.

In Warsaw, the news of Dizengoff’s death spread rapidly. All Zionist institutions lowered their flags. Jewish newspapers appeared with black borders.
