Download PDF for this date

A door-to-door type election campaign to get out the vote for the forthcoming World Zionist Congress–including telephone squads, campaign captains, direct mail, rallies and public meetings–was launched this week by the Labor Zionist Movement, Israel Stolarsky, Labor Zionist leader who was named chairman of the Labor Zionist Movement Congress Election Campaign Committee, said that the Labor Zionist movement “is taking the nationwide elections for the World Zionist Congress seriously, and will attempt to reach all registered Zionists to convince them to vote in the mail ballot election which will be held within the next six to eight weeks.”

The Labor Zionist campaign committee also reported that Labor Zionist branches throughout the US were trying to set up public debates with other Zionist groups so that all could discuss ideological issues within the American Zionist movement and bring them out into the open. The seven Labor Zionist groups which make up the Labor Zionist Congress Election Campaign Committee are American Habonim Association; Farband, Labor Zionist Order; Friends for Labor Israel; Pioneer Women, Poale Zion and the two youth movements, Ichud Habonim and Dror.
