Fact-finding Mission of U. J. A. Women Leaders Leaves for Israel

Download PDF for this date

A fact-finding mission of nine Women’s Division leaders of the United Jewish Appeal left New York International Airport via El Al Israel Airlines yesterday for a three-week survey of the needs of refugee women and children in Israel, Western Europe and North Africa.

Headed by Mrs. Hal Horne, national chairman of the UJA’s Women’s Division, the delegation will assess these needs in preparation for the division’s fund-raising activity in the Appeal’s 1955 campaign. The group will survey accomplishments through UJA funds among Israel’s orphans, the speed with which immigrants are integrated into the economic life of Israel, and the progress of that nation’s agricultural progress in behalf of its immigrant newcomers.
