Download PDF for this date

An appeal to the nations of the world “to return to the Jewish people the children and orphans who are now in monasteries and in other Christien institutions throughout Europe,” was issued here today at a rabbinical conference attended by more than 500 rabbis and heads of rabbinical institutions of learning.

The conference adopted a resolution recommending the establishment of Jewish religious schools in every town and village in Palestine. It appealed to the Palestine government not to discriminate between religious and non-religious educational institutions.
