Convened in Carlsbad, Czechoslovakia, the Congress discusses details of the Palestine Mandate and particularly the prerogatives of the Palestine Zionist Executive (PZE) that guides Jewish immigration and settlement in Palestine. Inheriting the work of the Zionist Commission, 1918-1921, the PZE is headed by Colonel Frank Kisch. It will change its name officially to the “Jewish Agency” in 1929, but already is recognized by the British as that Jewish Agency that represents Zionist interests in Palestine. A proposal to include non-Zionists in the PZE is rejected by the congress.
