JNF board members demand nixing of meeting to okay buying West Bank land

Representatives of the Reform and Conservative movements on the Jewish National Fund’s board of directors have demanded that a planned meeting of the board on April 22 to permit the organization to purchase land in the West Bank be canceled, Haaretz reports.

The groups base their demand on the legal opinions of two lawyers who examined the JNF’s Memorandum of Association, and who assert that it does not allow such acquisitions.

The board’s management has based its decision on a different legal opinion that claims the opposite.
