JNF Chooses Executive to Conduct Kayemeth Activities

The Board of Directors of the Jewish National Fund meeting today elected a three man executive to conduct the affairs of the JNF until a successor is chosen at the next World Zionist Congress to replace the late M. M. Ussishkin. The executive consists of Rabbi Meir Berlin, honorary president of the World Mizrachi Organization; Berl Katznelson, editor of the Labor daily Davar; and Dr. Abrahem Granovsky, present managing director of the JNF. In connection with the new appointments a joint appeal to world Jewry to aid in the reclamation of Palestine was issued today by the Zionist Organization, the Jewish Agency, the JNF and the Keren Hayesod.
