Download PDF for this date

The largest group of American leaders ever to meet at the State of Israel will gather in Jerusalem next Spring when the nationwide United Jewish Appeal expects more than 1, 000 delegates from communities throughout the United States at an extraordinary three-day UJA anniversary conference to be held in June. Plans for this spectacular event were made public today by Morris W. Berinstain, president of the UJA.

The overseas gathering, Mr. Berinstein said, “will give Jewish communal leaders and UJA supporters who will be in Israel at a time when its people are celebrating their 10th Anniversary of Independence, the opportunity to see and assess for themselves the great humanitarian achievements they helped bring into being.”

The UJA president pointed out that the conference will be a high-spot of the year in which UJA will mark its own twentieth year of humanitarian effort. “During the past two decades the organization has aided more than 2, 600, 000 persons in need and saved more than 1, 300, 000 lives,” he stated.
