Jewish Agency Director Returns from Survey Tour of Israel

Gottlieb Hammer, executive director of the American section of the Jewish Agency, today returned from Israel where he accompanied a delegation of four top New York banking officials on a survey tour. The bankers went to Israel at the invitation of the Jewish Agency to evaluate the Agency’s program for the immediate future and to advise on the formulation of the Agency’s policy for 1954.

The group of bankers was composed of George T. Newell, vice-president of the Manufactures Trust Company; Harold Rasmussen, vice-president of the Marine Midland Trust Company; H. Harold Whitman, vice-president of the National City Bank, and Max E. Gevers, assistant vice-president of the Bankers Trust Company.
