Sale of Israel Bonds in U.S. Now 38 Percent Ahead

Abraham Feinberg, president of the Israel Bond Organization in the United States, and Dr. Joseph Schwartz, executive vice-president, who are now in Israel, reported to government leaders today that the sale of Israel bonds in America is 38 percent ahead of the corresponding five-and-a-half month period in 1955.

The two top leaders of the Israel bond campaign, together with members of the Israel Government, will map plans for intensification of the bond drive with a view to secure maximum financial aid for Israeli projects. Mr. Feinberg declared here that the extraordinary response of American Jewry to the bond campaign during June is an indication of the great alertness towards Israel’s needs prevailing among Jews in the United States.
