Download PDF for this date

Representatives of the Middle East Rehabilitation and Relief Administration, an official British Government relief group with headquarters in Cairo, conferred here today with the Palestine Jewish Council for the Relief of European Jewry on the extent of the contributions that Palestine can make to the rehabilitation of devested Jewish communities in Europe.

The MERRA representatives, Majors Webb and Barret-Brown, said that Palestine Jews could render an important service by contributing trained medical and social workers to the units that MERRA plans to send into liberated territories. Among the projects discussed were the establishment of a training camp for volunteers for the relief units and the question of obtaining the required equipment.
