Mizrachi Urges Zionist Congress to Finance Religious Education

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A resolution demanding that the Zionist Congress support religious education and observances in Palestine was adopted last night at the closing session of Mizrachi’s twentieth annual convention, held at the Breakers Hotel.

The resolution asked the forthcoming congress to exclude from its budget non-religious national educational institutions. The congress is also asked to revoke the rule giving the Palestine Jews the power to choose educational curricula by ballot, to create a special department in the Executive of the Jewish Agency for Palestine to supervise institutions connected with Sabbath and kashruth and to compel the Histadruth (Palestine labor federation) to enforce kosher laws in the kitchens of its institutions and colonies.

Other resolutions were adopted in protest against the treatment of Jews and other minorities in Germany and Poland.
