January 7, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Preaching in (###) St. Kilda Synagogue, Rev. Jacob Danglow referred to the success that had attended the efforts of the Australian Jewish Land Settlement Trust. Explaining that when the Trust had first started some months ago he had been a vigorous opponent of the scheme because he had thought it impracticable he now thought it only fair that having seen the progress that had been made to say that he had been wrong.

“Together with the President of this congregation,” he said, “on Sunday last I visited the settlement at Berwick. I talked with the settlers all of whom have already made good and I can say that I was profoundly impressed by the fine type of men who have been settled.”

The statement of Rev. Danglow has occasioned much satisfaction to the Trust’s officials and is likely to have far reaching effects on the Trusts future development.

Disbursements to the total of £220 were made by the executors of the lat(###) Mr. Nahum Levinson of this city, the bulk of whose estate was bequeathed to Jewish Charitable Institutions in Melbourne.

The Victorian Jewish Welcome Society received £300 for the English education of the children of Jewish immigrants, the Keren Hayesed £250, Th(###) Palestine Welfare League of Victoria £250 the Melbourne Jewish Aid Society £250 and the Australian Jewish Land Settlement Trust £1100. This makes the total advance to the Australian Jewish Land Settlement Trust £2000.
