Refusal to participate in the Palestine reconstruction work was expressed in a resolution adopted yesterday at the annual meeting of the Zentral Verein Deutscher Buerger des Juedischen Glaubens, an anti-Zionist body in Germany.

The resolution was adopted following a heated discussion on the question of participation in the Keren Hayesod collections in Germany. The resolution urged the 80,000 members of the Verein to refrain from participation, because this work has “a nationalistic character.”

The Federation of Galician Jews celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the organization at a dinner Sunday night in the Broadway Central Hotel, New York. Six hundred attended, representing many societies, lodges and congregations affiliated with the Federation.

Rubenstein, city editor of the “Day,” and Joseph Barondess addressed the gathering. A minute of silence was observed during the course of the dinner of honor of the late Jacob Pieffer, founder of the federation.

The Vaad Hakashruth, the Kosher Meat Supervision Board, will hold its annual banquet next Wednesday, March 10, at the South Side Hebrew School auditorium. Meyer A. Bernstein is chairman of the committee.
