So. American Jewish Communities to Help Build ‘beit Hatfutzot’ in Israel

Dr. Moses Cyrus Adler, chairman of the administrative committee of Beit Hatfutzot, the House of World Jewish Communities to be built in Tel Aviv, said here today that he was particularly gratified with offers by various South American Jewish communities to assist in financing the construction of the building.

The House will carry the name of Dr. Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Zionist Organization. Dr. Weiler, who Just completed a three-month tour of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Brazil on behalf of the project, said that “Beit Hatfutzot has been put on the map of the South American Jewish continent.”
