Download PDF for this date

The central committee of the World Mizrachi Organization adopted a resolution today demanding that the Jewish Agency boycott the forthcoming London conferences on Palestine. High Commissioner Sir Harold Alfred MacMichael received President Isaac Ben Zvi of the Jewish National Council and Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog, who presented demands for the admission of 10,000 German-Jewish refugee children and the relatives of Palestine residents. Sir Harold said he would transmit the demands to Colonial Secretary MacDonald.
