There are now more than 1,500 religious Chalutzim (pioneers) associated with the Agudist Pro-Palestine Fund in Palestine, according to a statement made by Rabbi Dr. Munk, presiding at a meeting of the Fund held here. These Chalutzim, who cling to the principles of the Torah, should be enabled to become a constructive part of the Palestine Jewish community, he urged.

He also reported that the educational work of the Fund is progressing and that Beth Jacob schools, maintained by the Agudah were being established in different parts of the country.

H. A. Goodman, reporting on Kfar Hayovel, the colony established on the occasion of the Silver Jubilee of the Agudah, said that the central office of the Keren Hayishub had decided to place land at the disposal of the Pro-Palestine Fund for the purpose of the colony.
