Sir Godfrey Hugginge, Prime Minister of Southern Rhodesia, this week-end paid public tribute to the contribution of the local Jewish community to the colony. He spoke at a banquet at Salisbury, S.R., honoring Dr. Israel Brodie, Chief Rabbi of the British Empire, who is currently visiting Jewish communities in the British Commonwealth.

“Members of your community have always entered into the life of the colony and although some of them are not Britons, by birth, everyone of them has helped sustain and assist in the development of this country with the same ideals as we have,” Sir Godfrey declared.
