An appeal to world Jewry to participate in the upbuilding of Palestine was made by Sir Herbert Samuel, former High Commissioner of Palestine, in an address he delivered at Nurenberg on Wednesday. Sir Herbert spoke at a reception given in honor of himself and Lady Samuel by the local Zionist group.

“The general and economic prospects of the upbuilding of Palestine are very favorable. World Jewry ought to participate in the upbuilding of the land,” he declared.

Lady Samuel addressed a meeting of Jewish women. She spoke on Jewish women’s activity in Palestine.

Reports that Sir Herbert refused to receive Zionist delegates were denied. Sir Herbert stated that although he expects to take an active part in the political life of England, he will also participate in the activity of the economic bodies on behalf of Palestine.
