A manifesto to the Jews of the world urging greater contributions for the development of the Jewish State in Palestine was issued here ### by the Keren Hayesod, which is the fund-raising institution of the Jewish ##cy.The manifesto points out that the tasks confronting the Keren Hayesod during ### transitional period and the days to follow are “immeasur## great.” Displaced will have to be brought to the Jewish State in large numbers and means must be ##d to absorb them, the call says. “We must build new villages, expand towns, ##ide for the consolidation of our country and its security.”

“When the Jewish State is established, the Jewish people throughout the ##d will continue to contribute to the building of the Jewish land,” the manifesto ##ares. “There was a law in the olden days when the Jewish State existed, that ##y single Jew, rich and poor, had to pay dues toward repair of the Temple and safeguarding of the country. All Jews here and abroad will henceforth provide ### the Jewish future in our own state. The Jewish people will maintain the Keren ##sod and strengthen it so that it will be the tool for construction and consolida## in the days ahead,” the manifesto concludes.
