Will Demand Immigration Certificates for Relatives of Immigrants (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Questions with regard to Palestine immigration and education will be raised by the Mizrachi delegates at the forthcoming session of the Zionist General Council, known as the Actions Committee, which will open its sessions in Berlin on December 20.

The Mizrachi will demand that certificates of immigration be granted to the relatives of immigrants as well as to the recipient of the certificate. It will also ask that the Zionist Executive should not prevent the transfer of pupils from the general schools to the Mizrachi schools if the parents of the pupils desire to do so.

Rabbi Meyer Berlin is proceeding to Germany to take part in the Actions Committee deliberations. Subsequently he will go to the United States to take part in the United Palestine Appeal campaign and thence to Canada for the Mizrachi Palestine Fund.

A report from London has been received by the Mizrachi headquarters here, to the effect that Sir John Chancellor, new Palestine High Commissioner, will seek a solution to the question of the Wailing Wall, that is favorable to the Jews. He will simultaneously strive to restore good relations between Arabs and Jews.
