Charges that Agudas Israel had presented a sharp anti-Zionist memorandum to Kind Hussein when their delegation headed by Rabbi Zonnenfeld called on the Hedjas King last Sunday, were denied today by leaders of the organization. The charges were made by Doar Hayom, the Hebrew newspaper published in Palestine, causing a sensation. In the memorandum to Kind Hussein the Agudas declared that Palestine is the center of the aims of all Orthodox Jewry which wants to restore to Palestine a harmony in which all races would collaborate. The Polish rabbis participated in the presentation of the memorandum.
