Expansion of Palestine Colony Mapped at National Convention of Order Bnei Zion

Plans for the expansion of Kfar Bnei Zion, a colony in Palestine established in the name of the Zionist fraternal organization, were discussed here today at the 38th national convention of the group.

Abraham A. Redelheim, president of Bnei Zion, recommended that the colony, which was founded last March, be enlarged by 500 acres. He urged individual chapters of the order to finance the erection of various public institutions in the settlement, whose land will be owned individually by the colonists. In a message to the convention, Moshe Sneh, a member of the Jewish Agency executive, called on American Jews to “stand up and be counted in the fight of transforming Eretz Israel into a Jewish state.”
