Download PDF for this date

A committee to co-ordinate the drives of the Israel Bond organization and the United Jewish Appeal is expected to be formed this month following discussions held between the Ambassador of Israel, representatives of the Israel Bond campaign, leaders of the United Jewish Appeal and representatives of the American section of the Jewish Agency, it was learned here today.

The discussions have been based upon decisions reached by the Government of Israel on July 20. The main principles approved by the Israel Government and conveyed to the Israel Ambassador in Washington for implementation include:

1. Full support for both the Bond drive and the United Jewish Appeal.

2. The establishment of a committee with representatives of the Bond drive, the United Jewish Appeal and the Jewish Agency under the chairmanship of the Israel Ambassador.

3. This committee is to plan coordinated activity by both drives and to issue binding directives for reconciling any differences or conflicts.

4. The acceptance of agreed time schedules to eliminate conflicts in communities.

Details affecting the composition and program of the committee are now under consideration by all parties concerned. The facts were confirmed on inquiry by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency at the Israel Embassy in Washington.
