Download PDF for this date

A plan to call a world congress of orthodox Jewry to further the building up of Palestine in the spirit of the Torah will be among the principal points discussed at the world conference of the Mizrachi, orthodox Zionist group, to be held at Krakau on August 8, Rabbi J. L. Fishman, chairman of the council of the Mizrachi World Organization, told a J.T.A. representative here.

Rabbi Fishman also revealed that in addition to questions of internal organization, the Krakau conference would determine the attitude of the Mizrachi at the World Zionist Congress which will open in Prague, August 25.

The Mizrachi will take its usual stand at the Zionist Congress, Dr. Fishman said, advocating the development of Palestine on the basis of Jewish traditions and teachings, and would work for the election of a coalition executive.
