Download PDF for this date

Reconstruction of the Jewish Agency along the lines (##) the 1929 Zurich agreement, which called for an equal Zionist and non-Zionist representation, was urged here by Dr. G.R. Brunschvig, president of the Union of Jewish Communities in Switzerland.

Addressing a meeting of the organization, Dr. Brunschvig warned against the (##)surgence of anti-Semitism, declaring that history has shown that Jews everywhere have a common destiny and, therefore, need common representation. Such representation existed when the Agency included non-Zionists, he said, adding that since the (##)ergencies between the Zionists and the non-Zionists have faded away, it would be (##)visable to revise the Agency.
