Jewish Agency Sets Up Group to Map Plans for World Zionist Congress Session in 1950

The American section of the Jewish Agency today announced the formation of a committee which is to complete by next month a preliminary report on the projected work of the forthcoming session of the World Zionist Congress, scheduled to be held in Jerusalem next year. The Congress is expected to revaluate the whole Zionist movement in the light of new conditions and to clarify the relationship between the Government of Israel and the Jewish Agency.

The report which the committee will prepare is expected to serve as a basis for discussion by Zionist bodies throughout the world before a final agenda for the Congress is adopted. Dr. Israel Goldstein heads the committee. Participating in the committee discussions are Dr. Nahum Goldmann, chairman of the American section of the Agency, and Berl Locker, chairman of the Jerusalem section, who is now in this country. The committee is composed of representatives of all Zionist groups in the U.S.
