Download PDF for this date

Palestine Jewry is the only Jewish community prevented from assisting refugees, Dr. Israel Feldman, chairman of the Palestine committee of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, declared last night in condemning Britain’s refusal to admit 10,000 German Jewish children to the Holy Land. Dr. Feldman was a guest of honor, together with Neville Laski, president of the Board of Deputies, at the annual dinner of the Achei B’rith society. He urged complete equality of all parties at the forthcoming parleys on Palestine.
