More than 800 Jewish businessmen and communal leaders from the United States and Canada will attend the conference, which will inaugurate the Fall phase of the 1959 campaign to sell $75,000,000 in Israel bonds. The gathering will also mark the attainment of a peak of $400,000,000 in bond sales since the first issue was floated in 1951.
