Download PDF for this date

A meeting of the Zionist Actions Committee here has approved the Jewish Agency’s decision to send a three-man delegation to London to aid Dr. Weizmann, who is engaged in important Zionist political negotiations, and to attempt to reconcile the differences between Dr. Weizmann and David Ben-Gurion. The delegation chosen by the Agency consists of Moshe Shertok, political chief of the Agency, Rabbi Jacob Fishman, representing the Mizrachi, and Dr. Emil Schmorak, a member of the Agency executive who represents the General Zionists.

It is understood that the Agency is anxious to have the delegation leave for London as soon as transportation can be arranged. The Actions Committee session also reiterated its approval of the “political line” followed by the Agency executive, which is based on the “Biltmore Declaration,” which calls for the creation of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine. The next session of the Actions Committee will be convened on Monday to discuss activities in connection with the rescue of European Jewry. It was also announced today that the Assefath Hanivcharim, the Jewish National Assembly of Palestine, will meet on January 12 to discuss various political problems.
