Download PDF for this date

A group of Mexican Jewish industrialists and financiers touring Israel announced today its intention of raising $1, 000, 000 to assist in the economic development of the Jewish State. The party, led by Mexican industrialist Boris Segal, conferred with leaders of various Israeli industrial enterprises and with prominent members of the Israeli Manufacturers Association.

Later, at a meeting in honor of the Mexican Jews, Leon Dulzin, a Mexican national and head of the Jewish Agency’s economic department, declared that Mexican Jews can be extremely helpful in developing trade links between their country and Israel, as well as in upbuilding Israel directly.

The Israel Government, meanwhile, gave formal approval to the establishment here of a new mortgage bank headed by A. Surasky, a Mexican Jew. Sr. Surasky hopes to be able soon to increase the bank’s capitalization from the original $3, 000, 000 to $10,000,000.
