A special six-week campaign in the New York area to raise $8,000,000 in Israel bond investment funds for the economic development of Israel was launched at a luncheon meeting at the Capitol Hotel attended by 400 Jewish communal leaders.

Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the American Jewish Congress was named chairman of the special campaign which will culminate at the sixth annual Chanukah Festival for Israel, at Madison Square Garden, on December 6. Dr. Goldstein announced that the Festival will be dedicated to Prime Minister David Ben Gurion of Israel “as a seventieth birthday tribute to this great Jewish statesman and leader.”
