“Israel will set no limit on immigration as long as there is a Jew anywhere in the world who needs to or wants toenter the country,” Israeli Labor Minister Golda Myerson declared here last night at a dinner in behalf of the United Jewish Appeal of Greater Hew York which was held at the Waldorf-Astoria.

“But how many will be able to come, how many will be able to settle in Israel, depends directly on the support given “by Jews in the United States to the U.J.A.,” she pointed out. “We must populate areas like the Negev and western Galilee to assure that we will not be attacked again,” she added.
