Download PDF for this date

Ernst Frischer, former President of the Jewish Party in Czechoslovakia and now living in Palestine, will probably be appointed as the first Jewish member of the Czech State Council, it was learned today by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

It is understood that Czech President Banes is only waiting for all the Jewish organizations concerned to accept Frischer as their official representative before announcing the appointment. Although, it is reported that the Agudas Israel is reluctant to accept the Czech engineer, it is hoped that these difficulties will be surmounted in the near future.
