A campaign to raise a fund for the planting of 10,000 trees in Palestine, to be called the “Cleveland Forest,” was launched here at a conference of 150 delegates representing more than eighty benevolent organizations. The planting of the forest will mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the establishment of the Cleveland Council of the Jewish National Fund.
