Jewish National Fund Collects Sum of £98,000 in Seven Month Period

Download PDF for this date

The receipts for the first seven months of the Jewish year, from October to April, amounted to £98,063, which is a decline on last year’s receipts, amounting in the same period to £117,026, the Jewish National Fund headquarters here state.

The decline is partly due to the inability of a number of European countries to export their contributions, resulting in an amount of some £6,000 being thus held up, it is stated. In addition there has been a serious drop of receipts from the United States, from £29,000 to £22,000.

Last year’s figure included an advance from South Africa of £5,750.

There has been an increase in receipts in Belgium, Holland, and Switzerland, while there has been a decline in Germany, Great Britain, all parts of Roumania and in Palestine, where £4,621 were received in the seven-month period.

The second half of the year usually brings in a larger sum than the first half, the statement concludes, expressing the belief that as a result of a number of efforts in various countries the total reecipts for the year will not fall short of those of last year.
