Immigration to Israel Cannot Be Limited, Moshe Sharett Telis Pioneer Women

The present rate of immigration to Israel is an “elemental force” which “is as impossible to stop or even to stop or even to restrict it as it would have been to arrest the flow of immigration from all parts of Europe to the United States a hundred years ago, ” Moshe Sharett, Israel Foreign Minister, declared here last night at the Silver Jubilee dinner of the Pioneer Women.

The more than 2,000 persons who attended the dinner also heard Mrs. Beba Udelson, general secretary of the Council of Working Women in Israel, sister organization of the Pioneer Women, report on the situation of the women of Israel and of their progress in the government service and in industry and agriculture.
