Zionist Body Seeks Normal Industrial, Farm Output in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

The Palestine commission of the Zionist General Council today called for the rallying of all Zionist forces around the Jewish Agency Executive to carry out emergency tasks and asked normal continuation of industrial and agricultural production.

The resolution was adopted after the commission had heard and discussed a comprehensive report by Moshe Shertok, head of the Agency’s political department, and reports by Dr. Arthur Ruppin and Emil Schmorak on the economic situation.

It was decided to rename the Masad colony Kfar Ruppin, in honor of Dr. Ruppin, and to give the name Kfar Mack, in honor of Federal Judge Julian M. Mack of New York, to a settlement to be established shortly near Ein Hashofet (Fount of the Judge), which is named for retired Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis.
