Download PDF for this date

The Jewish National Assembly today named six representatives to advise the Jewish Agency for Palestine during the forthcoming British-Arab-Jewish conferences in London. They are: Chief Rabbis Isaac Herzog and Ben-Zion Uziel, Berl Katznelson, Ben-Zion Mossinsohn and Joshua Supraski. The action was taken at a closed plenary session of the assembly at which a minority was understood to have continued to oppose participation in the conferences. A proposal by the left Poale-Zion, laborite Zionists, to add Chaim Kalvariski, former head of the Jewish Agency’s Arab department, to the delegation was rejected.
