Download PDF for this date

A memorandum containing recommendations concerning the future of the German colony in Palestine has been submitted to the Palestine Government by the Jewish Agency, it was revealed today by Moshe Shertok, political chief of the Agency, addressing a meeting of the Small Zionist Actions Committee.

Mr. Shertok disclosed that, in addition to the memorandum submitted last month to the British Government, demanding the establishment of a Jewish state, the Agency sent a memorandum to the Palestine Government urging mass immigration of surviving Jews from Europe.

The meeting of the Large Zionist Actions Committee, which was scheduled to convene in London the end of next month, will not be held because of technical difficulties, it was announced at the meeting. In its place, a conference of members of the Smaller Actions Committee, chosen on the basis of party representation, will be held in London, and other Zionist leaders will be invited.

The committee, at today’s session, elected Abraham Harzfeld of the Palestine labor Party; Abraham Kestenberg, of the Poale Mizrachi; Jacob Hazan of the Hashomer Hazair and Joseph Janower, veteran Zionist leader from South Africa, to the board of directors of the Jewish National Fund.
