Download PDF for this date

The largest group of Yemenite Jews ever to reach Palestine arrived here today. In the contingent were 787 men, women and children. They came by special train from Egypt and were met by representatives of the Jewish Agency at the Athlit station in Palestine. Temporary lodgings have been arranged for them at the Athlit clearance camp.

Dr. Bernard Joseph, legal adviser to the Jewish Agency for Palestine, left today for the United States. He intends to spend most of his time in Washington in connection with the Zionist office which is now functioning there under the supervision of Dr. Nahum Goldman.
