Bejamin Rinsky, general secretary of the DAIA, Argentine Jewry’s central representative organization, greeting Mr. Turkow on behalf of the Argentine Jewish groups, stressed that Mr. Turkow’s appointment had been made after the DAIA’s request to WJC headquarters in New York for the filling of the post, which had been vacant for several years.
