Download PDF for this date

A resolution to do “what is practical and possible to improve relations between the people of South Africa and Israel” was adopted at the National Conference of the Zionist Revisionist Organization which met here, attended by delegates from all parts of the country. The conference also resolved to “strengthen Jewish education in South Africa, to give it full support, and as far as possible, to influence its direction.”

A feature of the conference was the tribute paid to Mr. Joseph Daleski, who resigned the chair after 15 years’ leadership of the organization. Conference inscribed Mr. Daleski in the Tel Hai Iron Book, and a presentation was made to him by his colleagues on the outgoing executive. Messages tributing his sterling leadership of the South African movement were read from World Zionist Revisionist leaders, while tributes were also paid to him by leaders of the S.A. Zionist Federation, of which he is a vice-chairman, and the S.A. Jewish Board of Deputies, of which he was formerly an executive member. Mr. Daleski is also a life member of the World Zionist Actions Committee and a member of the World Revisionist Executive. The conference unanimously elected him vice-president of the organization. Arnold Golembo was unanimously elected chairman in succession to Mr. Daleski.
