Download PDF for this date

The National Executive Committee of Farband-Labor Zionist Order today urged that the United States delegation at the United Nations should insist on a termination of serious provocations against Israel on the Sea of Galilee. It also urged the UN to call on the parties concerned to meet and try to settle all problems outstanding between them.

Meeting in special session, the highest governing body of the Labor Zionist fraternal order addressed an urgent plea to President John F. Kennedy, in which it asked him to take steps in this direction through the U.S. delegation in the United Nations. The telegram was signed by Meyer L. Brown, president; and Louis Segal, general secretary.
