Chief Rabbis and Pica Representatives Call on Chancellor (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Sir John Chancellor, new High Commissioner of Palestine, received Rabbi A. J. Kook, Chief Rabbi of the Ashkenazic Community and Rabbi Jacob Meir, Chief Rabbi of the Sephardic Community, showing interest in the Jewish problems described to him.

The High Commissioner expressed the hope that under this administration the National Home will be developed more than hitherto. The two Rabbis stated that they gained the impression from the interview that Sir John is warmly interested in the upbuilding work.

A delegation of the Pica, Palestine colonization association, also called on the High Commissioner who asked them for details on the Jewish colonies.
