New York (Dec. 13)
The expenditures of the Jewish Agency, the Keren Feyesed and the Jewish National Fund – the agencies deriving their American support from the United Palestine Appeal – totalled $31,104,146 in the year ending Sept. 30, 1945, it was announced today by Dr. James G. Heller, national U.P.A. chairman.
“The paramount goal of the U.P.A. agencies during recent years has been the rescue, rehabilitation and absorption of a maximum number of refugees from lands of oppression,” Dr. Heller declared. “Toward this end it has been necessary to expand every aspect of the work performed by these agencies. In addition, during the war years, Jewish Palestine mobilized manpower, industrial and agricultural production to meet wartime needs.”
