American J.N.F. Leaders Satisfied with Actions Committee Decision

Satisfaction with the resolution adopted by the Zionist Actions Committee to strengthen the work of the Jewish National Fund was expressed here today in a statement issued by Dr. Harris J. Levine and Mendel N. Fisher, president and executive director, respectively, of the J.N.F. of America. Both returned yesterday from Jerusalem where they participated in the Actions Committee deliberations.

“I am glad to report that the Zionist Actions Committee, the highest Zionist body between Congresses, took important steps to strengthen the work of the Jewish National Fund, especially in the United States, ” Dr. Levine said. “I am particularly gratified over the resolution of the Zionist Actions Committee which, reiterating the words of the 23rd Zionist Congress held in Jerusalem, declared that the World Zionist Organization has two funds-the Keren Hayesod and the Jewish National Fund- and called upon the Jews of the world to support the two chief instruments of the World Zionist Movement for the realization of Zionism.”

Mr. Fisher reported that the meetings of the Actions Committee were marked by amity and better understanding between American Zionists and the leaders of Israel. “This bridge of understanding at the Actions Committee between Israel and us should help a great deal in the strengthening of the Zionist movement in this country,” he declared.
