Palestine Observes Anniversary of Jabotinsky’s Death

Memorial meetings marking the second anniversary of the death of Vladimir Jabotinsky, late leader of the Zionist-Revisionist movement, were held throughout Palestine yesterday.

At the settlement of Mezudath Zeev, which is named after Jabotinsky, a special exhibition containing 1,500 items relating to the career of the Revisionist leader, was opened. On view are documents, photographs and uniforms of the World War I Jewish Legion. The opening of the exhibition was attended by numerous Jewish leaders. Mayor Israel Rokach of Tel Aviv delivered the main address.

The Jewish National Fund office today announced that a convalescent home will be opened at the ancient city of Safed. It will be established on a large plot of land near the entrance to the Jewish quarter in what was formerly a residence of Scottish missionaries. It is felt by the JNF that the institution will stimulate Jewish settlements in the upper Galilee region.
