Canadian Zionists Ask Representation on American Branch of World Zionist Organization

Download PDF for this date

The executive board of the Canadian Zionist Organization last night protested the failure of the Zionist Actions Committee to include a Canadian Zionist representative on the American branch of the World Zionist Organization.

The Canadian Zionists asserted that the American branch is not representative of other Jewish communities in North and South America because its membership includes only American citizens. A resolution adopted by the Canadian executive declared that Canadian Jewry has played an important part in upbuilding the Jewish state and its record entitles it to at least one representative on the World Zionist Executive.
