Download PDF for this date

Plans for a nationwide celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Jewish National Fund were made public today by the J.N.F. of America.

The plan includes the convocation of a national J.N.F. conference in Washington, the publication of a special jubiles volume reviewing the activities of the organization during the fifty years of its existence and the arranging of local celebrations throughout the United States. A committee of 100 Jewish and non-Jewish parsonalities will be in charge of the plan and the arrangements.
