Download PDF for this date

Zionism still has a mission as long as the Jewish question exists, Dr. Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, declared here today.

Addressing the 16th annual convention of the Dutch Zionist Association, Dr. Goldmann told the delegates that the greatest danger to the Jewish people was “its own illusions, ” not anti-Semitism. He said the Zionist movement was a bridge between Israel and the Galuth. Dr. J. S. Van Hall was elected the new president of the Association.
