Download PDF for this date

The Argentine Committee for Economic Cooperation with Israel has been founded here. The group was established at a meeting attended by Dr. Abraham Mibashan, president of the Jewish Community; Dr. Moises Goldmann, president of the DALA, central body of Argentine Jewry; Dr. Isaac Goldenberg, president of the Zionist Central Council; and Julio Kleiman, president of the Argentine-Israeli Chamber of Commerce.

The new group, which will be devoted to the sale of Israel bonds, was addressed by Dr. Arieh Kubovy, Israel Ambassador to Argentina, and George Flesh, General Zionist member of the second Knesset, who is touring this country on a mission for the Israel bond sales organization. The Argentinean leaders decided to launch a bond campaign here, under the chairmanship of Simon Mirelman, former president of the United Fund campaign.
