Considerable progress was made on the problem of intensifying pioneering to Israel at the 23rd World Zionist Congress, Dr. Israel Goldstein, American Zionist leader and president of the World Confederation of General Zionists, declared at a press conference today.

Dr. Goldstein, who will leave Israel by air tomorrow to attend a meeting of the World Jewish Congress in Geneva, asserted that “our Israeli friends have been made to understand that new approaches must be found for attracting Jewish youth from Anglo-Saxon countries, and that limited service periods in Israel are likely to produce larger and better results toward permanent settlement in Israel.”
