U.S. Labor Zionists Open Four-day Convention; Will Discuss Community Democratization

Reorientation of Labor Zionist policy in the United States in the light of the establishment of Israel will be one of the major issues to be dealt with at the 27th national convention of the Labor Zionist Organization of America, which opens here tomorrow. More than 300 delegates from all parts of the country arrived here today to attend the four-day convention.

The convention will also take up the question of immigration of American Jewish youth to Israel as pioneers and of “democratization of American Jewish communities.” Principal speakers at the parley include Golda Myerson, Israel Minister of Labor; Ambassador Eliahu Elath; and Dr. Nahum Goldmann, Chairman of the American section of the Jewish Agency.
