A series of 20 Economic Seminars on Israel will be held in major cities throughout the United States under the auspices of the Economic Department of the Zionist Organization of America, it was announced here today.

The seminars, to be held in prominent industrial centers during the next several months, will serve to bring together for authoritative discussions on Israel’s economic potentialities many of the foremost businessmen and industrialists in their respective communities. Outstanding economic and financial authorities will speak on such topics as industrial life in Israel, imports and exports and foreign trade.

It is expected that the seminars will be most effective in the dissemination of first-hand information on every aspect of Israel’s economic needs and potentialities as well as in defining the part American Jews must play in the general upbuilding of Israel.
