The delegates to the World Zionist Congress participated in ceremonies honoring Israel’s war dead at the military cemetery on Mt. Herzl, overlooking the city.

The procession of delegates, led by members of the World Zionist executive including Premier David Ben Gurion and Dr. Nahum Goldmann, chairman of American section of the Jewish Agency executive, made its way up the hill behind a color guard bearing a large wreath on which was inscribed: “From the 23rd World Zionist Congress to Israel’s heroes.”
