Zionist Movement Warned by Goldmann Against “danger of Stagnation”

The Zionist movement was warned today by Dr. Nahrn, Goldmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, against the “danger of stagnation” and against becoming just one of many Jewish organizations.

Addressing the congress of the World Confederation of General Zionists, which is taking place here parallel with the Assembly of the World Jewish Congress, Dr. Goldmann said that “the Zionist movement can receive great masses outside of it, if we can find suitable forms to receive them.” This, he added, would strengthen the movement for the historic task of consolidating Israel.

Mrs. Rose Halprin, co-president of the Confederation, agreed with Dr. Goldmann that it is essential to attract new groups to the Zionist movement. Dr. Israel Goldstein, the other co-president, lauded Dr. Goldmanns contributions to the movement and said that the World Zionist Organization and the World Jewish Congress supplement each other.
