World Federation for Polish Jews to Open Office in Israel; Parley Concludes

A world conference of groups active in behalf of Polish Jews ended here last night following the adoption of a plan calling for the establishment in Israel of an office of the World Federation for Polish Jews.

Earlier, Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, president of the world body, reported that the organization had spent $1,250,000 for aid to Polish Jewish immigrants in the camps. He called for the mobilization of all Jewish national bodies, particularly in North and South America, to speed the reconstruction of Israel.
