Y., (Special Dispatch) As an initial step iri the nationwide movement among the Jews of America to protest and condemn the British edict restricting the purchase of land by Jews in Palestine, an amount of $250,000 was remitted by the Jewish National Fund in America to Jerusalem at the dis posal of the Keren Kayemeth Le- Israel, which is the Palestine Jew ish land purchase and reclamation Pope Praises Cooperation Between Catholics and Jews Pope Pius XII praised the coop eration and good will between Catholics and Jews in the United States in a message to Bishop Bernard J.

In a letter to Rabbi Abba Hil lel Silver and Rabbi Jonah B.

Each leader of Jewish culture snatched from the brutal claws of Hitlerism in Poland will be a definite gain for the cause of Jewish knowledge and tradition for world Jewry.”—Z. Tygel Zionists Protest To U. S. Government NEW YORK (JTA)—While Zionist leaders called on the State Department and British Embassy in Washington to protest against the Palestine land restrictions, mass meet ings in New York and Boston initiated a series of protest rallies throughout the country. A rally was held in Carnegie Hall, New York, on Monday night, addressed by Zionist leaders who asserted that the Jews would nev er accept a “ghetto” in their homeland. The previous evening Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency, told a Zi onist gathering in Boston’s Sym phony Hall that the land restric tions aimed to creat “a pale of set tlement” which would be “reminis cent of Czarist Russia.” Last week a protest meeting was held here by the American Friends of a Jew ish Palestine. The Jewish National Fund of America cabled $250,000 to Jeru salem, as a first remittance to be followed by others, to make pos sible conversion of “land imme diately available into a foothold for homeless Jews.” The cable accompanying the remittance said that it was intended as “an ex pression of our solidarity in this trying hour and confidence in the future of the Jewish National Home.” J. N. F. President, Dr. Israel Goldstein, also made public a ca ble received from Menachem M. Temple Sisterhood Preparations for Members of the Temple Sister hood under the direction of Mrs. Louis S. Joel are completing plans for the sale of tickets for the lec ture of H. V. Kaltenbom, dean of American radio commentators, who they are bringing to Jack sonville to deliver an address at the Duval County Armory, March 21. Kaltenbom’s subject will be "I Look at the War,” and he will tween the Catholic and Jewish people which our interchange of letters so significantly revealed. Bishop Sheil referred to the let ter in which he acknowledged re ceipt of the contribution from the United Jewish Appeal. Aserting that “the memory of Pius’ Xl’s magnificent struggle against the inhumane and anti- Catholic doctrine of racialism con tinues to inspire all of us,” Bishop Sheill pointed out that Pope Pius XII was especially grateful that the United Jewish Appeal’s con tribution for assistance to Catho lic refugees was intended “as an act of homage to the memory of his great predecessor.” Ussishkin, world president, in Je rusalem which said only: “Read Jeremiah Chapter 32, Verse 44.” This verse is as follows: “Men shall buy fields for money, and write it in deeds, and seal it and certify it by witnesses, in the land of Benjamin, and in the environs of Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, cities of the south; for I will cause their captivity to re turn, saith the Lord.” Later a message voicing the hope that purchases made since May 18, 1939, would be saved from the retroactive features of the measure, was received from Us sishkin. The cable urged American Jews not to despair, expressed de termination to persist in opposi tion to the ordinance through “all means” and advised that there were still “large opportuni ties” available. The veteran Zion ist leader voiced confidence that American Jewry, “the center of Jewish hope,” would “rise to the occasion and assist the Jewish Agency in its political struggle and the Keren Kayemeth (J.N.F.) in its practical work.” Active With Kaltenborn Lecture speak for one hour, at the conclu sion of which he will conduct a 30-minute question period. Seat ing arrangements will be made so that the Armory will accommo date 2,500 people. Undoubtedly the biggest under taking ever attempted by a lo cal Jewish organization, the Sis terhood is working under a terri fic overhead to bring this out standing personality to Jackson ville, and Mrs. Joel and her large committee have placed tickets for sale with leading organizations and business firms in the city. Those from neighboring cities who are interested in hearing Mr. Kalt enbom are urged to take this op portunity of doing so.
