Agudas Israel Threatens Jewish Agency with Fight over Refugee Children

The Agudas Israel of America today announced that its three-day emergency convention in Ferndale, New York, which opens later this month, “will serve an ultimating to the Jewish Agency for Palestine” on refugee children. The announcement says that despite promises to rabbis in America, the Jewish Agency still maintains refugee children in “atheistic colonies” in Palestine and prevents them from receiving a Jewish religious education.
