Israel-finnish Friendship League to Erect Village in Israel

Download PDF for this date

A representative of the Israel-Finnish Friendship League has come to Israel to choose a site for a special Finnish village here in which non-Jewish Finns who contribute to Israel’s progress may live.

The chief occupation of the villagers will be the construction of pre-fabricated homes, using lumber cut in Finland. The factory will be run on a non-profit basis.
