Download PDF for this date

The World Confederation of General Zionists, at a meeting of its executive here, adopted a resolution stating that “the negotiations now going on between the General Zionist Party and the Herut Party in Israel are inconsistent with the existence and purpose of the Confederation.”

The meeting, at which issues confronting the forthcoming World Zionist Congress were discussed, decided to hold a two-day conference of the World Confederation in Jerusalem on the eve of the opening of the World Zionist Congress which is to start its session there on April 24. The conference will attempt to crystallize the position of the Confederation on the problems which the Congress is to take up.

Joseph Serlin, representing the General Zionist Party of Israel, and Moshe Kol, representing the Progressive Party in Israel, came from Israel to attend the Confederation meeting in New York, which were presided over by the Dr. Israel Goldstein, president. Others who participated were Dr. Nahum Goldmann, Mrs. Rose Halprin, Dr. Emanuel Neumann, Mrs. Rebecca Shulman, Mortimer May, Mrs. Judith Epstein, Jacques Torczyner, Mrs. Miriam Freund, Abraham Goodman, Mrs. A. Tulin, A. Krumbein, L. Ilutovich, and Fred Monosson.
