Download PDF for this date

More than 500 Jewish leaders will meet under the auspices of the United Palestine Appeal at Palmer House Hotel, Chicago, for a two-day conference beginning Dec. 14. Speakers will include Sir Norman Angell, James G. MacDonald Dr. Kurt Blumenfeld, Dr. Solomon Goldman and Dr. Nahum Goldmann.

Among the problems to be considered are: (1) continued progress of immigration of Jewish refugees into Palestine from war zones and other parts of Europe: (2) assistance to the 500,000 Jews in Palestine in weathering the economic crisis caused by the war: (3) support of the Jews of Palestine as a mainstay of British defense in the Mediterranean area.
