Meyer Obadia, president of the Casablanca Jewish community and member of the Chamber of Representatives, was nominated today to serve as rapporteur of the Moroccan Parliament’s Finance Commission. There are three Jews in Parliament: Obadiah, a Deputy, and David Amar and N. Seabag, who are Senators.

The Casablanca Municipal Council made a grant today of 15,000 dirhams ($3,000) to three Jewish institutions in Casablanca. They were the LOSE, aid for scholars, and the Benito Home.
