Agricultural training is provided these youngsters between the ages of fifteen and seventeen so that they may take their proper place on the Jewish farms in Palestine. Funds to accelerate the rebuilding of Palestine so that ever greater numbers of the Jews of Germany, Poland and other Central and Eastern European lands may be absorbed, are sought by the United Palestine Appeal, combining the Palestine Foundation Fund and the Jewish National Fund, which asks $3,500,000 from American Jewry during 1936.
