Urge Attention for Sephardic Immigration to Palestine

Download PDF for this date

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The question of the growing Sephardic immigration into Palestine is raised in a petition addressed to the Zionist Actions Committee, which meets here on Thursday, by the Executive of the World Union of Sephardic Jews. The petition states that the Sephardic immigration to Palestine now amounts to one-third of the total Jewish immigration into the country and urges, in view of the distress among the immigrant Sephardic Jews, that the £E10,000 promised by the Fourteenth Zionist Congress should now be allocated.

The petition emphasizes the inseparability of the Sephardic Union and the Zionist Organization, and the loyalty of the Sephardic Jews to Zionism.
