Dr. Goldman Sails for 3-week Stay in Palestine Prior to Zionist Congress

President Solomon Goldman of the Zionist Organization of America was to sail Saturday on the Cunard White Star liner Georgic for a three-week stay in Palestine prior to attending the World Zionist Congress in Geneva next month.

The purpose of his visit to Palestine, Dr. Goldman stated, was “to learn the mind and heart of the nearly half-million Jews in the Yishuv who are ultimately the deciding voice in the problems confronting the Zionist movement as a result of the new British policy in Palestine. In going to that country of which the Rabbis said ‘that it makes wise’, I hope that I may gather in some of that wisdom and bring it with me to Geneva, where in consultation with all of the Zionist leaders, we shall seek the way before our people in this critical moment in Jewish history.”

In the absence of Dr. Goldman from this country, Dr. Stephen S. Wise will serve as acting president of the Zionist organization.
