MRS. EDWARD JACOBS, NATIONAL PRESIDENT OF HADASSAH, ANNOUNCED TODAY HER ACCEPTANCE OF MEMBERSHIP ON THE EXECUTIVE OF THE JEWISH AGENCY FOR PALESTINE, TO WHICH SHE WAS RECENTLY ELECTED ON THE PROPOSAL OF THE NON-ZIONIST GROUP OF THAT BODY. “BY SELECTING ZIONISTS AS THEIR NOMINEES, THE NON-ZIONISTS GIVE RECOGNITION TO THE POTENCY OF THE ZIONIST PLATFORM,” SHE SAID IN A STATEMENT.

SHE ADDED: “MY PARTICIPATION IN THE COUNCIL OF THE EXECUTIVE WILL BE NO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IT WOULD OR COULD BE HAD I BEEN ELECTED BY THE ZIONIST CONGRESS. I SHALL EXERCISE THE SAME INDEPENDENT JUDGMENT ON MATTERS TO BE DEALT WITH BY THE EXECUTIVE OF THE JEWISH AGENCY.”
