Download PDF for this date

A $10,000 loan to the Jewish Agency for Palestine was voted today by the 17th annual convention of the Junior Hadassah meeting here.

The delegates also voted a resolution expressing solidarity with the Palestine Jewish community and calling upon American Jewish youth to strengthen their homeland.

The following budgets were adopted: $25,000 for the Jewish National Fund; $43,000 for the Meier Shfeyah Children’s Village in Palestine; and $10,000 for the Nurses’ Training School.

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, chairman of the World Zionist Organization, predicted “the war will end with the complete downfall of Nazism in a message from London to the 17th annual convention of the Junior Hadassah which opened here last night. Weizmann said that end of the war, however, “will not mean the end of the Jewish problem,” and added: “It is our duty to rally all Jewish forces still free to act in order to secure life and future for our people and strengthen the Zionist movement.”
