Two long-established American
Jewish organizations, the United
Labor Zionist Organization of
America and the Farband Labor
Zionist Orders, have moved from
recurrent discussions over the
years about the desirability of a
merger to specific steps in recent
months to bring it about.
A basic formula and a proposed
structure for the unified organi-
zation have been approved in
principle by the national executive
committee of Farband and the
central committees of the LZOA.
Both organizations have reschedul-
ed their national conventions to
meet in Monticello next Decem-
ber at the same hotel.
They will meet separately at
first and then, assuming each
convention approves conditions for
the merger, the delegates will
meet in a single convention of
the merged groups.
Representatives of the two or-
ganizations — both with deep
roots in the early stages of the
great post-World War I Jewish
migration to the United States—
have been meeting regularly for
months in merger discussions,

It was agreed that unification
would result in consolidation of
staff, finances and human re-
sources, as the basis of a more
effective concentration on "spe-
cific areas of Labor Zionist con-
cern, as well as to undertake a
more comprehensive program of
community action," according to
a joint statement to the JTA.
Under the proposed merger, the
JTA was told, Farband will con-
tinue its fraternal activities, but
a subdivision would be created
for "community action" to be con-
ducted mainly by the former LZOA
members. In this way, it was in-
dicated, the work of the two
groups would be maintaind in their

tary of Farband, told the JTA
there had been "a considerable

He told the JTA that the ex-
ecutive board of the American

movement, had approved a bid

organization and that the bid
would be voted on during the
December national conclaves.
