Download PDF for this date

A pledge to aid Jews wishing to settle in Australia is contained in a resolution adopted here by the Executive Council of Australian Jewry at its annual meeting. However, the resolution emphasized that the organization recognizes Israel’s priority in manpower claims.

Another resolution expressing loyalty to the Crown was adopted at the meeting. The representative body of Australian Jewry also resolved to express thanks to the Australian Government for its cordial relations with Israel. They also went on record as opposing the admission of German nationals to Australia until the “German people has proven by deeds that it has undergone a change of heart.”
