Jewish Conference Urges U.S. Not to Curtail Aid to Israel

October 8, 1953
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A resolution urging the United States not to curtail its grant-in-aid assistance to Israel, but to continue and maintain it “as long as such assistance is necessary,” was adopted today at the national convention of the Pioneer Women, the women’s labor Zionist organization of America. The resolution pointed out that this was in conformity with American diplomatic objectives and the cause of world peace.

Another resolution expressed the gratification of Pioneer Women to the American Zionist Council for its “greatly expanded field of activity” undertaken as a result of the Jerusalem Agreement of November, 1952. “We welcome,” said the resolution, “the convoking of the American Zionist Assembly for the beginning of December and trust that it will prove to be a milestone in the history of American Zionism, together with all sections of the movement. It is our hope that the American Zionist Council will increasingly prove to be the instrument through which the great aims held in common by Zionists in America will be implemented.”
