The Jewish Agency today announced the signing of an agreement with the Tel Hai Fund, central fund of the World Zionist-Revisionist Organization, under the terms of which all the American affiliates of the latter will cease campaigning for funds or materials for any Israel purpose during 1950.

Under the agreement, the Zionist-Revisionist Organization has been granted a sum of money to be used for constructive work in Israel. The allocation is in addition to the amounts normally spent by the Jewish Agency in behalf of the members of the Zionist-Revisionist Movement in the course of the Agency’s regular colonization, immigration, absorption and Youth Aliyah programs.

The agreement hans the collection of funds or materials for Israel by all organizations directly or indirectly affiliated with the Zionist-Revisionist movement, among which are: American Committee for National Child Centers in Israel, Palestine Pioneers Foundation, American Committee for the National Sick Fund of Palestine, Tel ##Hei Fund, Brit Trumpeldor of America, and League for Jewish National Labor in Palestine.
