Herzog Asks Unity on Eve of Sailing

On the eve of sailing for London to attend the Palestine conferences, Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog issued a proclamation on behalf of the six-man Jewish delegation calling for unity and harmony among Palestine Jewry “at this critical time.” Praying for heavenly guidance for the delegation, Dr. Herzog said: “Whatever the immediate results of the London conferences, do not let us falter in our cause, which is linked with eternity and with humanity’s loftiest ideals.”

Meanwhile, the Jewish National Council issued a declaration reiterating its suspicions regarding the British Government’s intentions in connection with the conferences and asserting that Palestine Jewry would resist any attempt to relegate it to a minority status or to restrict Jewish immigration and sale of land to Jews.
