A festival of Jewish music and interpretative dancing will be held here on October 14 for the purpose of raising funds to help the German refugees in Palestine. The Leagues for Labor Palestine, of which there are several rapidly growing groups here, have arranged for Benjamin Zemach, well-known Habimah dancer, and his Jewish ballet to repeat part of his “Light of Israel Ballet” with which he delighted thousands at the Hollywood Bowl last summer. Sidnor Belarsky will sing Palestinian. songs and Max Rabinowitz will play the piano.

The Los Angeles Leagues for Labor Palestine have pledged themselves to raise money for a well to be sunk in a colony in Palestine, as a memorial to Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff, and which colony will be particularly devoted to the rehabilitation of refugees from Germany.
