Download PDF for this date

It is unlikely that Dr. Chaim Weismann will go to San Francisco before the security conference closes, Moshe Shertok, chief of the political department of the Jewish Agency, disclosed here. He expressed the hope, however, that David Ben Gurion, chairman of the Agency executive, would soon leave for the United States. He is in London at present.

Rabbi Itche Meir Levin, president of the central committee of the World Agudas Israel, left here today, by plane, for the United States. Besides discussing Agudah matters in the United States, Rabbi Levin will also negotiate with various Jewish bodies, including the Jewish Agency, concerning the establishment of a united Jewish front at San Francisco and elsewhere.
