Download PDF for this date

The “war-time Zionist Congress” at its concluding session here today issued a manifesto to the Jews of the world pledging that Palestine Jewry “will guard Palestine’s might” and urging Jewish communities in Nazi-held countries to courageously await the day of liberation.

The congress also cabled a message of greeting to Dr. Chaim Weizman, president of the World Zionist Organization, who is now in the United States, and to the Zionist Organization of America asking for “increased deeds for Zion.”
