Download PDF for this date

American members of the Central Board of the World ORT Union sailed today for Paris where they will participate in a World ORT conference July 6 and 7 to discuss plans to implement the ORT-JDC vocational training program for DP’s.

The delegation is headed by David Rosenstein, who announced that the world ORT budget for 1947 totals $4,845,000, of which the JDC is contributing $2,000,000. Pointing out that the ORT is not engaged in independent fund-raising in the U.S. this year, Rosenstein appealed to all its friends and supporters to increase their contributions to the United Jewish Appeal.
