Download PDF for this date

A campaign for $500,000 for the Palestine Foundation Fund was launched here at a dinner attended by leaders of the Jewish community. More than $50,000 was contributed by those who attended.

A group of German-Jewish refugees here have decided to raise funds for the planting in Palestine of a small wood named after the late Dr. Michale Iroub, who, as a representative of the Palestine Foundation Fund, made several visits to the Jewish communities in South America.
