The Board of Directors of the Jewish National Fund in Palestine has assigned 3,000 dunams of land for colonization purposes to the Mizrachi Youth in Palestine, Hapoel Hamizrachi, it was announced by Mizrachi Youth headquarters here.

On this area, the Hapoel Hamizrachi, with the aid of the Mizrachi Youth of America, will build three new colonies. A large part of this territory is suitable for orange plantations.

The Hapoel HaMizrachi will colonize 1,260 dunams of land in Wadi Hawareth. On this land the organization will settle 70 families who have been resident in Palestine for six to ten years and have plantation experience.

Another colony is to be built on 1,000 dunams located between the colonies of Petach Tikveh and B’nai Brak. This area was purchased by means of a loan secured from the Jewish National Fund. Six families will be colonized there with the aid of the Brandeis Bank.

A third colony was established on 800 dunams and is connected with the colony of Givat Chaim. One hundred and sixty families in all will be settled in these three colonies. The colonization plans are being carried out with the aid of the Mizrachi Youth of America.
