Event: The League of Nations Ratifies Britain’s Mandate over Palestine and Recognizes the Zionist Organization

User login

The text of the Mandate reiterates Britain's commitment to the Zionist project as phrased in the Balfour Declaration. It also decides that an "appropriate Jewish agency shall be recognized as a public body for the purpose of advising and cooperating" with the Mandatory Power in matters related to the establishment of the Jewish National Home. It specifies that the Zionist Organization will be considered as such agency and requests it to secure the cooperation of all Jews who are willing to assist in the establishment of the Jewish National Home.
