New Settlement Dedicated in Palestine on Site of Birthplace of Prophet Amos

Download PDF for this date

A new settlement, which will probably be named after Chief Rabbi Herzog, was formally dedicated today on the site of the birthplace of the prophet Amos.

An advance party, including twenty youths who arrived in Palestine about a month ago from Bergen-Belsen, has been at work on the site for several weeks, erecting a stockade and temporary living quarters. About 500 guests from Jerusalem and neighboring colonies attended.
