NEW YORK (Jul. 21)
A resolution deploring the fact that several Eastern European countries no longer permit their Jewish citizens to emigrate to Israel was adopted at the 26th annual convention of the Hapoel Hamizrachi of America.
The religious Zionist laborite convention also adopted a resolution expressing its disturbance “over the pressure that America is bringing to bear on Israel to diminish its territory and to admit Arab refugees who are opponents of the Jewish state and are likely to serve as dynamite for the peace and prosperity of the state, and to remove the crown of Jerusalem from the Jewish state.”
The convention expressed its desire that the World Conference of the Torah V’Avodah–Torah and labor–movement be called in the nearest possible future, in order to establish the organizational frame of the United World Religious Zionist movement and the mobilization of all forms of the organization, in order to attract religious Jews to the ideal of Torah V’Avodah and its program of constructive work in Israel.
