Hadassah Convention Urges U.S. Intervention to Secure Jewish Commonwealth

Download PDF for this date

The United States was urged to use its good offices to secure action by Britain opening Palestine to unlimited Jewish immigration, looking towards the development of a Jewish Commonwealth there, in a resolution adopted last night at the 30th annual convention of Hadassah, meeting at the Hotel Cleveland.

Other resolutions condemned the terrorists in Palestine, saluted the war effort of the Palestine Jewish community, urged the United Nations to assure full economic and technical assistance to Jews in Europe to enable them to rebuild their shattered lives or to emigrate to Palestine if they so desire, and demanded that Zionists be represented on any international body charged with finding a settlement of the Palestine problem.
