Zionists End Parley with Session at Fair’s Palestine Pavilion

Download PDF for this date

The 42nd annual convention of the Zionist Organization of America closed today with a session at the Jewish Palestine Pavilion of the New York World’s Fair attended by about 1,000 persons. Speakers included Dr. Israel Goldstein, Dr. Solomon Goldman, Rabbi Sonderling and Bernard A. Rosenblatt.

Mr. Rosenblatt, former New York magistrate and now a resident of Palestine, likened British restrictions on the Jewish homeland to pre-Revolution repressive measures against the American colonies. He said the Jews would reply to the charge of illegal immigration by repudiating the restrictions as the American colonists had repudiated the British tax and other measures.
