Download PDF for this date

New York Zionist groups will take action on the extended program of the Zionist Organization of America Sunday afternoon when representatives of the Council of Jewish Organizations on Palestine assemble at the Hotel Astor. They will confer on a program of activity in behalf of the Zionist Roll Call and the Extension Fund for wider cultural and educational work in this country. Election of delegates to the Washington parley next month also will be discussed.

Local Jewry is expected to enroll 75,000 of a national quota of 250,000 non-members of the Zionist Organization as endorsers of the Palestine program now being furthered.

Sessions will begin at 2:30 o’clock. Among the listed speakers are Jacob Fishman, Abraham Goldberg, Magistrate Jonah J. Goldstein, Judge Greenspan who will preside, Dr. S. Margoshes, Morris Margulies and George Z. Medalie.

Jews of Brooklyn will meet Monday evening at the Hotel St. George to consider their borough’s role in the Zionist program, Louis J. Moss, chairman of the Brooklyn Conference Committee, announced.
