An official document granting the Zionist Organizations of America a plots of land belonging to the Jewish National Fund for the purpose of erecting the proposed “American Zionist House” which will serve as center for American Zionist activities in Israel, was presented here last night to Daniel Frisch, Z.O.A. president, at a banquet tendered to the Z.O.A delegation.

The presentation was made by Dr. Abraham Granovsky, head of the J.N.F. The plot is located near Hakirya, the official seat of the Israeli Government. In accepting the document, Mr. Frisch preside the work of the J.N.F. and reiterated his suggestion that all political groups in Israel agree on a three-year coalition in order to strengthen the government’s plans for developing the country. Unity among all groups is also necessary in order to attain the largest possible amount of investments from abroad, he said.
