44th and Last Settlement of Year Established in Israel

The 44th and last settlement of the Jewish year 5713 was established this afternoon in an area near the Jordan-held “triangle area” of central Palestine.

The core of the settlers of the “Metzer” settlement are Hashomer Hatzah youths from Latin American. Among the 2,000 guests at the festivities marking the establishment of the community was Dr. Arieh Kubovi, newly appointed Israel Minister to Argentina.
