Increase Palestine Representation at Congress

Download PDF for this date

Palestine’s delegation to the forthcoming Zionist Congress in Zurich will be larger this year than ever before.

The increase in the number of delegates is due to the lowering of the unit of shekel payers who are entitled to elect a delegate. Up to now 2,000 shekel payers could choose a delegate, by reason of the decrease to 1,500, Palestine is entitled to 30 instead of 22 representatives.
