Download PDF for this date

The formation of an organization called "Americans for Haganah" whose aim is "to rally the moral support of the people in the United States behind unrestricted Jewish immigration into Palestine," was announced here today.

The announcement claimed that the new organization is "backed by major Jewish and non-Jewish groups." However, the Zionist Organization of America said that it has not yet taken any stand on the new group.

The president of the Americans for Haganah is Abraham Feinberg, a New York industrialist. Nahum Bernstein, a lawyer, is the secretary. The organization is planning to call a conference on Palestine immigration to meet in New York late this summer, the announcement said.
