Henrietta Szold Back from Basle; Discusses Outcome of Congress

Download PDF for this date

Miss Henrietta Szold, American member of the Jerusalem triumvirate, arrived in New York Wednesday on the steamer “De Grasse.”

“I am certain that the Jews of America, particularly those who have contributed to the Palestine funds in previous years, will cooperate with us now that American Zionists have been given a great share in the administration of Zionist affairs in Palestine. Failure at this moment is unthinkable,” Miss Szold stated.

Miss Szold expressed satisfaction with the results of the Fifteenth Zionist Congress and with the achievements of the American Zionist delegation. “However,” she said, “it would not do any harm for American Zionists to create a special fund for sending its delegates to the congresses. Such a fund would enable us to have delegates who are well versed in Zionist affairs and who would remain at the congress until the business is finished.”
