Nearing 100,000 Dunams of National Fund Property

June 22, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jewish National Fund has just concluded an arrangement with the Palestine Land Development Co., Ltd., whereby its holdings in Palestine have been considerably increased.

Previous to this acquisition the Jewish National Fund possessed about 79,000 dunams, a little under 20,000 acres, of land in Palestine. The present transaction results in nearly another 20,000 dunams being added to the possession of the Fund which now totals over 98,000 dunams, close on about 25,000 acres.

The chief acquisitions are in the famous Valley of Jezreel (the “Emek”) where alone the estates now possessed extend to about 74,000 dunams.
