Download PDF for this date

Establishment of a special organization, Plugath Hiyah, for the purpose of training young Hadassah members who plan to go to Palestine for settlement there, was decided on here today at the closing session of the 22nd annual convention of Junior Hadassah.

Other resolutions adopted urge Congress to go on record favoring unlimited Jewish immigration into Palestine and appeal to President Truman to repeat his demand for imediate admission to Palestine of 100,000 Jews from Europe.
