January Designated As “land for Youth” Month

Download PDF for this date

January will be observed by Zionist youth groups as “land for Youth” month, aimed at implementing plans of the Jewish National Fund’s Youth Department for a “Youth Settlement Project,” the J.N.F. announced today.

A “Dunameter,” a multi-colored coin folder device, has been issued by the Youth Department for use during the month. Participants in the realization of the Youth Settlement Project plans will be asked by “Dunameers” to contribute. There are ten slots in the device into which ten dime contributions may be inserted.
