   Text in Hebrew and in German. Maps in English and in Hebrew. This is a fund-raising insert which lists the accomplishments to date of Keren HaYesod. Included are statistics such as total sum of monies raised (4,950,000 lira of Eretz Yisrael), the number of people who immigrated to Eretz Yisrael since World War I (144, 500), the number of agricultural settlements that have been helped and sustained by Keren HaYesod (50 settlements, including over 8000 people), etc. The last line reads (in translation):New and great tasks stand before Keren HaYesod.
