At least one of the concerts held in connection with the festival will be televized and a number will be broadcast. They will feature the works of Achron, Bloch, Prokofieff, Weinberg and others. More than 1,000 Jewish community centers and agencies in various sections of the country have planned special programs and salutes during the month.
