“eternal Light” for Palestine Pavilion Lighted in Jerusalem

Download PDF for this date

An “Eternal Light” for the Jewish Palestine Pavilion at the New York World’s Fair was lighted yesterday before Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall in the presence of a small group of prominent Jews, whose number was limited because of the Government’s fear of disorder in the predominantly Arab quarter. The light will be presented to the pavilion by Yehuda Yari, secretary of the Palestine Foundation Fund, who will arrive in New York on April 28.
