NEW YORK (Jan. 15)
Plans for the 1953 campaign for State of Israel Bonds will be drawn up at a joint meeting of the national executive committee and the Board of Governors of the Israel Bond organization which will be held Sunday at the Hotel Pierre here.
More than 100 Jewish leaders from key cities in the United States will participate in the discussions leading to the formulation of a program “to mobilize American investment dollars for the establishment of new industries, for the expansion of agriculture, for the development of electric power and harbors, for the construction of railways in the new State of Israel,” according to Julian B. Venezky, chairman of the executive committee of the Israel Bond Drive.
The conference will be addressed by Ehud Avriel, Director General of the Ministry of Finance of Israel and former Israel Minister to Czechoslovakia. In addition to charting a course for the 1953 campaign, the week-end conference of the Israel Bond leaders will also consider reports on the results of the Israel Bond drive in 1952 and the progress in economic development that has been made in Israel with investment dollars made available through the sale of Israel Bonds in the United States.
