Download PDF for this date

A group of 11 boys and girls, members of Zionist youth organizations in America, sailed today for Israel on the S.S. Atlantic to join collective settlements there. Four more will sail on the Israeli freighter Elat on September 5. Eight of the group are members of the Hashomer Hatzair and are going to settle in the movement’s American kibbutzim.
