Download PDF for this date

Consideration of the problems of Jewish refugees from Algeria, who are now pouring into France by the thousands with some seeking to proceed to Israel, will be a key item on the agenda of the annual meeting of the Zionist Actions Committee, which will open here Sunday, for eight days.

Key officials of the French Zionist Federation will take part in discussion of the Algerian Jewish situation. They will be among the 140 delegates–75 from Israel and 65 from 11 other countries–attending the meeting. Thirty-four of the delegates will be Americans. The Zionist Actions Committee is the ruling body of the movement between World Zionist Congresses.

Yaacov Tzur, chairman of the Actions Committee presidium, today stressed the timing of the meeting during a period of increased immigration and the emergency situation of Jewries in some countries. He said all sessions would be open except one on immigration and adsorption. The opening session will be attended by President Ben-Zvi and other government leaders. The principle address will be given by Dr. Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Zionist Organization.
