Download PDF for this date

The Zionist Actions Committee, supreme Zionist body next to the World Zionist Congress, will meet here next Tuesday to discuss a number of important political questions, including the sending of a delegation to the United States in connection with the decision of the Jewish Agency to establish an office in Washington. The session will also discuss the question of intensifying Zionist political activities in London by strengthening the World Zionist Executive there.

In addition to political problems, the Actions Committee will also take up various plans for post-war reconstruction in Palestine. Prior to the meeting of the Actions Committee, the Jewish National Council of Palestine will hold a special meeting with the participation of representatives of various local Palestinian organizations, for the purpose of adopting a united stand on the questions which the Actions Committee is to decide upon.

Leaders of various Zionist groups, including the General Zionist Party “A” and the World Mizrachi Organization, today held separate conferences to clarify their attitude towards the various points on the agenda of the Actions Committee.
