Download PDF for this date

An appeal to the United Nations to “take every possible measure to affect the escape and rescue of the surviving remnants of the unfortunate Jewish people of Europe,” was issued today by the national administrative council of the Zionist Organization, meeting here with 120 delegates in attendance. The committee adopted a resolution urging passage by Congress of the Palestine resolution now pending in both the Senate and the House.

It was reported at the meeting that the ZOA has sold $43,000,000 in war bonds, and that the J.N.F. has sent $3,467, 862 to Palestine since last October 1st. The nutting, which marked the 22nd anniversary of the passage of the Congressional resolution favoring a Jewish national home in Palestine, and the 40th anniversary of the death of Theodore Herzl, was addressed by Dr. Israel Goldstein, Dr. Nahum Goldmann and Isaac Naiditch.
