The 1959 budget of Histadrut, Israel’s general federation of labor, was set here at 22,500,000 Israeli pounds.

Co-treasurers I. Haskin and G. Levenson reported that 13 percent of Histadrut’s budget was covered by income raised abroad by the Histadrut Campaign. They addressed a special appeal to American friends of the Histadrut to continue and extend their support of the labor movement in Israel.
