A conference of some 100 Cleveland Jewish organizations affiliated with the Jewish National Fund of America has decided to plant 50,000 trees in the Forest of Six Million in Israel, which is a project to honor the memory of the 6, 000, 000 Jews martyred by the Nazis in Europe. Mendel N. Fisher, executive director of the J.N.F., was the featured speaker at the parley.
