Governor James M. Curley today officially designated next Sunday as Palestine Day in a proclamation issued at the State House.

“I urge all citizens, regardless of faith, to participate in this celebration,” the Governor’s statement said, “by devoting public programs to an exposition of the achievements that have been registered in restoring to modern civilization a land holy to all through centuries of religious sentiment and tradition.”

The proclamation pointed out that the establishment of Palestine as the Jewish homeland has been recognized “by the governments of the world and by our own United States Congress.”
