Besides this I have had no contact whatever with this committee. In all rescue matters, the Chief Rabbinate is working in ##ose cooperation with the general rescue committee established by the Jewish Agency ##intly with the Jewish National Council of Palestine and with the participation of ? sections of Palestine Jewry, including the Agudas Israel and the Revisionists.”
