Download PDF for this date

A group of 54 members of the Hanoar Hazioni, General Zionist youth organization, left Argentina today for permanent settlement in Israel. They were given an impressive send-off at the port here upon embarking.

A farewell meeting, attended by more than 2,000 persons, was held in their honor last night, addressed by the Israeli Minister, Dr. Kubovy, and by Jacob Bronfman, vice-president of the DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jewry.
