Secret Missive by Weizmann Stirs Parley

Download PDF for this date

A highly confidential letter from Dr. Chaim Weizmann on the internal situation in the Zionist movement was read last night at a closed session of the General Zionist conference now in progress here and immediately became the center of deliberations, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned.

Professor Selig Brodetsky, member of the political department of the Jewish Agency in London, outlined the Zionist policy as envisaged by the World Zionist Executive, calling for peace within the Zionist ranks as the only basis for discipline. He also called for an agreement not to draw the Zionist funds into party conflicts.

The main point of the debate which followed Professor Brodetsky’s speech was how to solve the differences between the A and B groups within the General Zionist party. Their chief point of difference is the personality of the Zionist leaders.

The conference elected a presiding body of eleven, including Rabbi Joshua Thon, Dr. Ben-Zion Mossinsohn and Dr. Samuel Margoshes of New York.
