Download PDF for this date

Archaeological research in Palestine has the twofold purpose of advancing man’s knowledge of ancient cultures and of establishing the unbroken connection between the Jewish people and the soil of the Holy Land, Issac Ben-Zvi, president of the Jewish National Council, declared today addressing the opening session of the conference of the Palestine Jewish Exploration Society here.

Several reports were given concerning new developments in archaeological research in Palestine to an audience which included many non-Jewish archaeologists including several priests and monks.
