Conference of Uruguyan Zionist Federation Backs Jewish Commonwealth Demand

The nineteenth annual conference of the Zionist Federation of Uruguay concluded here last night after adopting resolutions expressing its support of the demand for immediate creation of Palestine as a Jewish commonwealth and urging that the Jewish Brigade participate in the occupation of Germany.

The conference, which was opened at a large public meeting on Sunday, was addressed by Rabbi Joseph Lookstein, of New York, who is in South America on a mission for the Joint Distribution Committee, and by Argentine and Uruguyan Jewish leaders.
