Download PDF for this date

A group of editors of Israel newspapers has arrived here at the invitation of the British Government. The members of the group will be guests of the British Central Office of Information, which has prepared a plan to acquaint the Israel journalists with British life and institutions.

The group, led by Joseph Hoftman, president of the Israel Journalists Association, was met at the airport by representatives of the British Foreign Office, the Israel legation, the British Information Office and leaders of the British Zionist movement. A luncheon in their honor was arranged by the Zionist Federation of Great Britain. Leaders of the Federation, welcoming the guests, stressed the necessity for closer Anglo-Israel cooperation. Replying, Mr. Hoftman said the delegation is proud to have been invited by the British Government.

Arriving on the same plane was a delegation from the “Tnuat Moshavim,” which will proceed to South America to promote the immigration to Israel of Jews with limited capital who wish to form cooperative settlements in the Jewish state. Upon completing its mission in South America, the delegation, composed of Yitzhak Korn and Yehudith Ginsberg, will proceed to the United States and later to Britain to recruit settlers from those countries.
