Download PDF for this date

A “radical revision” in the structure of the Jewish Agency will be sought at the forthcoming World Zionist Congress by the delegation of the Mizrachi Organization of America, Dr. Pinkhos Churgin, president of the organization, declared here today in a statement before embarking on the s/s La Guardia for Israel. “The structure of the Jewish Agency must be changed to render its more efficient in confirmity with the changed conditions erected by the establishment of the Jewish State,” he said.

The delegation also will seek the creation of “some kind of territorial coordination between the different Zionist organizations in each country in order to meet the challenge of forces attacking Zionism and the Jewish State,” he declared. It will also press for “greater latitude of activity” by the various Zionist organizations in their relations with the Jewish National Fund and the Palestine Foundation Fund, the two major Zionist fund agencies.
