Canadian Zionists Request Congress Be Held in United States

Download PDF for this date

The executive board of the Zionist Organization of Canada, meeting here, has decided to cable the World Zionist Executive in Jerusalem requesting that the 22nd World Zionist Congress be held in the United States. The request will be made “in view of the importance of the United States in connection with the Palestine problem” and because the General Assembly of the United Nations will be old in New York in September.
