Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt today accepted an invitation by the Jewish Agency to attend the world congress of Youth Aliyah, which will take place in Jerusalem next year. The invitation was extended by Moshe Kol, world director of Youth Aliyah, who was tendered a tea party by Mrs. Roosevelt.

Mr. Kol, who is now visiting the United States, will be one of the principal speakers at the Hadassah national convention which will open this week-end in Miami Beach. He will report on the Youth Aliyah activities for which Hadassah has raised $32, 000, 000 since the movement of bringing children over from Nazi Germany and other countries to Israel started 25 years ago.
