Councillor Robert Briscoe of Ireland, who was Dublin’s first Jewish Mayor, arrived in the United States today to visit communities in many parts of the country for the Israel bond drive.

Mr. Briscoe has been active in work for the State of Israel for many years. He played a decisive role in the inauguration of the Israel bond drive in Ireland three years ago, and is one of its most active leaders.
