Download PDF for this date

Moshe Sharett, former Israeli Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, is receiving extremely enthusiastic receptions in this country from leaders of the government as well as from the Jewish community.

In Perth, Adelaide and in this city, he has been greeted by governors, mayors and military guards of honor. Many Jews have turned out at airports to meet Mr. Sharett, who is accompanied by Mrs. Sharett. The Jews danced the hoar in honor of the visitors, sang Hebrew songs and shouted greetings in Hebrew.

Mr. Sharett is aiding campaigns here to assist Jewish emigration from Europe and North Africa to Israel. He is also meeting with leaders of the Labor Party and explaining Israel’s position in the present Middle East crises.
