Download PDF for this date

Support for “Herzl Week,” proclaimed by the Zionist Federation for the week of Oct. 29 to Nov. 5, was urged in a circular latter issued here by Chief Rabbi Israel Brodie in Hebrew to all rabbis and communities in Britain. The letter asked them to devote their sermons this Saturday to the memory of the founder of modern Zionism.

The British Committee for Relief Abroad today received reports from Germany that 80 Jewish inmates of the Belsen camp today reached Munich on routs to Israel. They are expected to continue on their journey early next week.
