Download PDF for this date

Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, chairman of the American Zionist Emergency Council, today told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that he had no comment to make on a report from Paris that he has resigned from the Jewish Agency executive.

“All statements will have to come from the Jewish Agency executive in Paris,” he said. The report attributed Dr. Silver’s resignation to sharp disagreement with other members of the Jewish Agency executive, particularly Dr. Nahum Goldmann, over the line the executive should follow on Britain’s Palestine proposals.
