American Jews Lauded in Palestine by Dr. Granovsky for Their Support of Zionism

American Jewry is proud of the Palestine Jewish community’s achievements and will stand by and assist the Jews in their struggle to establish a national home in Palestine, Dr. Abraham Granovsky, managing director of the Jewish National Fund today told a press conference here, reporting on his recent visit to the United States.

Dr. Granovsky expressed appreciation of the reception accorded him in America and praised Judge Morris Rothenberg’s leadership of the American J.N.F. He said that the Zionist movement in the United States was making great numerical strides, and pointed out that even the non-Zionists were insistent that Palestine represented the only possible solution for the homeless Jews of Europe.

Discussing his visit in America, Dr. Granovsky said he was impressed by the similarity of the American spirit and the spirit of “new Palestine.” He hailed American sympathy with the Jewish cause and said that both the U.S. and Palestine were seeking a “better world of positive creative achievement.”
