Download PDF for this date

Steps to organize the sale of Israel bonds in Canada have been taken by a special committee set up by the United Zionist Council, representing all Zionist groups in the country.

The National Conference for Israel and Jewish Rehabilitation has delegated to the United Zionist Council of Canada the task of floating the sale of Israel bonds in Canada for the next three years with an objective of $7,000,000 for that period. The bond sale will be under the aegis of the National Conference with the United Zionist Council acting as the functioning arm for this project. All Jewish organizations from coast to coast are expected to participate.

The executive of the National Conference has also taken important decisions towards the organization of the 1952 United Israel Appeal and the United Jewish Relief Agencies. A joint minimum quota of $5,250,000 was set for the 1952 campaigns.
