May 1935 The “Group of Five” Fail to Bridge the Gap Between Jews and Arabs

Noterim TrainingThe “Group of Five” ― five important Jews, holding no political position, try, unsuccessfully, to bridge the gap between the Jews and the Arabs. They are Pinhas Rutenberg, Moshe Smilansky, Judah Leib Magnes, Moshe Novomeysky and Gad Frumkin.

Hundreds of Yishuv members are recruited to the Jewish Supernumerary Police ― The Noterim (Guardsmen) ― for defense duties during the Arab riots. It is under British command but is in fact an arm of the Hagana.
