Jewish Colonization Association to Aid Settlements in Israel

A decision to join forces with the Jewish Agency to improve some underdeveloped settlements in Israel was approved today by the Administration Council of the Jewish Colonization Association.

The goal of the program, according to Sir Henry d’Avigdor Goldsmid, JCA president, who presided, is to bring the settlements up to a standard which will permit normal progress. The program will embrace 20 to 25 settlements and will cost 15,000,000 Israel pounds.
