Farmers’ Body Settling 150 Families Near Rehoboth

Download PDF for this date

One hundred and fifty families are being settled on land near the colony of Rehoboth on Palestine’s coastal plain by the Jewish Farmers’ Association, it was learned today. The families entered Palestine on labor immigration certificates furnished by the association and the new project is being financed by loans from the association and the Palestine Foundation Fund (Keren Hayesod). Part of the lands will probably be granted by the Palestine Government.
