Drive for “kisch Memorial Forest” Heavily Oversubscribed; Will Be Located on Mt. Tabor

The drive to raise funds for the establishment of a Kisch Memorial Forest in Palestine has been heavily oversubscribed, with $184,000 already raised, it was announced here today.

The forest, which will commemorate Brigadier Frederick H. Kisch, commander of the engineering corps of the famed British Eighth Army, who was killed by a land mine in Tunisia, is to be situated on Mount Taber. Kisch was an active Zionist, and, at one time, was chief of the political affairs department of the Jewish Agency.
