December 14, 1945
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Interim Committee of the American Jewish Conference, meeting in all-day session at the Hotel Biltmore today, called upon Congress to act without delay upon the Wagner-Taft resolution on Palestine.

“We hope that the Senate will vote promptly and favorably upon this resolution,” the Interim Committee declared. “It reflects the oft-reiterated sentiment of the American people in support of unrestricted Jewish immigration to Palestine and of Jewish aspirations in relation to that land. Through this resolution, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee again asserts the overwhelming American belief in the walidity of the principles of the Balfour Declaration and the Palestine Mandate, and its disapproval of the British White Paper.”
