The movement to further Jewish land settlement work in Germany was launched at an all day conference held Sunday in the former Prussian House of Lords. The conference was called at the initiative of the Association of Jewish War Veterans.

A committee to deal with the practical aspects of the work was formed, and a nationwide organization to raise the funds necessary will be set up.

Outstanding German Jewish leaders including Herr Wolff, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Prussia; Herr Neumyer of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Bavaria; Dr. Brodnitz of the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith; Dr. Alfred Klee of the Zionist Organization of Germany and Dr. Timendorfer, honorary president of the B’nai Brith lodges in Germany, declared their sympathy with the work and pledged support to the movement. The settlement work is expected to begin in the Spring of 1929.
