Central Conference of American Rabbis Thanks Truman for Request for Palestine Certificates

The executive board of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, at a meeting here, adopted a resolution expressing “profound gratitude” to President Truman “for his humanitarian request to the British Government to make immediately available 100,000 certificates of immigration for the displaced Jews in Europe to enable them to find refuge and sanctuary in Palestine.”

The resolution calls upon the British Government “to abrogate forthwith the policy of the White Paper of 1939 and to open the doors of Palestine, our ancient homeland, which has been internationally guaranteed as the ‘Jewish National Home’, so that the dispossessed may find a new home and a new hope on that precious soil which Jews have already done so much to reclaim, and in the land which they can again make the Promised Land, wherein all men, regardless of race or creed, may enjoy full and equal rights of citizenship.”
