NEW YORK (Sep. 23)
A united state of delegates from the United States to be elected to the forthcoming World Zionist Congress will be presented by Hadassah, B’nai Zion and the American Jewish League for Israel. This announcement was made by the three national presidents of these organizations, Mrs. Max Schenk, Hadassah; Mr. Harold Bernstein, B’nai Zion; and Rabbi Isadore Breslau, American Jewish League for Israel. In their statement, they declared that these three organizations share the conviction and philosophy that Zionist grouping in the diaspora should have no affiliation with any of the political parties in Israel and should not follow the pattern of political parties in the Knesset.
The policy of Hadassah, B’nai Zion and the American Jewish League for Israel, the statement added, is to relate all thought, support, effort and action to the growth and welfare of Israel as a whole, without regard to the interests of the individual parties and factions. The three presidents reported that the united state of Hadassah, B’nai Zion and the American Jewish League for Israel represents more than half of the 700,000 enrolled Zionists in the United States who will elect delegates to the next World Zionist Congress which will commence January 17, 1972.
