Immigration to Israel is Rising Again; 5, 000 Anticipated in October

Immigration to Israel is rising again and will reach 5, 000 in October, S.M. Shragai, head of the Jewish Agency Immigration Department, reported today. He described the new immigrants as “good material” for agricultural settlement.

Dr. Nahum Goldmann, who was chairman of the meeting at which Shragai made his report, discussed his South African tour during which the current United Jewish Appeal was successfully launched. He also reported on preparations for the international convention of World Jewish organizations scheduled for mid-October in London.

He said that after the London conference he would leave for the United States to attend the national conventions of Hadassah and the Zionist Organization of America.
