Pincus Says Establishment of U.S. Zionist Federation Comes at Crucial Moment

The chairman of the Jewish Agency told a Zionist audience here today that the establishment of an American Zionist Federation during the next few months comes at a crucial moment in the history of Israel and the Jewish people. Louis A. Pincus addressed a luncheon of the Labor Zionist Organization of America honoring Hy Faine, a past president.

“The new federation,” he said, “will serve both to consolidate the considerable existing strength of American Zionism and to expand it by welcoming the affiliation of new elements from the community at large.” He that in view of the present situation affecting the security of Israel, the strengthening effects of an American Zionist Federation would be “particularly timely.”
