Swiss Jews Elect Three Delegates to World Zionist Congress; Hair of Shebel-holders Vote

Download PDF for this date

Three delegates from Switzerland have been elected to the forthcoming World Zionist Congress — scheduled to be held in Jerusalem in July. One each was named to represent the General Zionists, Mizrachi and Mapai. A percentage breakdown of the voting gave the General Zionists 37 percent; Mizrachi, 33; Mapai, 21; Mapam, 9. Only half of all Swiss Jews eligible to cast a ballot in the elections did so.
