Jewish Agency Suggests Plan to Check Emigration from Israel

Download PDF for this date

The coordinating board of the Israel Government and the Jewish Agency met last night under the chairmanship of Acting Premier Moshe Sharett to discuss problems concerning immigration and emigration.

The members of the Jewish Agency presented at the meeting several proposals aimed at checking re-emigration from Israel. One of the proposals suggests the establishment of a special fund to assist newcomers who find themselves in need of support. Such aid, it is believed, would prevent them from leaving the country.
