SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The millionth visitor to the Israel Pavilion at the International Exhibition here today was a Catholic priest, Father Viseur, whose visit was made the occasion for a special ceremony in which he was presented with an all-expense free trip to Israel.

The priest, who is Preparing a Ph.D thesis on Hebrew philology and who is a warm friend of Israel, expressed his joy at the realization of an “old dream of visiting the Holy Land and seeing the revival of modern Israel.”
