NEW YORK (Oct. 5)
National leaders of the United Jewish Appeal will participate in the UJA’s third annual “good will tour” during October for an intensive series of community relations visits to Jewish communities throughout the country to advance refugee aid and welfare programs, it was announced today by Morris W. Berinstein, UJA general chairman.
The “good will tour” is made up of 20 nationally prominent leaders of the UJA who have volunteered to tour some 75 key cities throughout the country during October to help coordinate the current philanthropic endeavors which are of mutual concern to the National UJA and the local Jewish welfare organizations, of whose fund-raising campaigns the UJA is a major beneficiary.
The “good will tour” will not engage in fund-raising activities. The main objective of the tour is to share information and exchange views with local groups on UJA’s humanitarian efforts, and to strengthen the partnership which exists between the UJA and local Jewish communities in dealing with those problems.
