Download PDF for this date

Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds throughout the country were asked today to support the current campaign for $1,870,000 of the American Fund for Israel Institutions in a special appeal issued by Samuel Rubin, chairman of the Fund’s executive committee.

Mr. Rubin, who recently returned from Israel, stressed the necessity for development of the cultural institutions within the program of the American Fund since “culture is the greatest natural resource of Israel and the time may come when Israel will be called upon to play the role of a cultural catalyst in the Middle East.”
