Download PDF for this date

Establishment of the third National Fund for cultural purposes, bearing the name of the late Hebrew poet laureate, Chaim Nachman Bialik, will be considered at the forthcoming World Zionist Congress, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was informed today by reliable sources close to the Hebrew World Union and Tarbuth in Poland.

The Zionist organizations in a number of countries have included in their platforms for the forthcoming Congress a plank demanding the establishment of a “Keren Bialik” to create the necessary means for the broadening and intensification of the Hebrew culture and Zionist educational work in the Diaspora.

The Polish Zionist Organization also adopted such a resolution at its recent conference with Isaac Gruenbaum, member of the Zionist Executive, and is prepared to press the issue at the Congress in Lucerne next month.
