Canadian Jewish Leaders to Survey Israel’s Needs for 1960

Forty-eight leaders of Canadian Jewry are going to Israel for a 10-day survey of Israel’s current social and economic problems, preparatory to formulation of Canadian Jewry’s program of 1960 activities in aid of “meeting the tremendous backlog of unmet human needs” in Israel, according to an announcement today by the co-chairmen of the group. The joint chairmen are Lawrence Freiman, president of the Zionist Organization of Canada; and Samuel Bronfman, president of the Canadian Jewish Congress.

The party will leave New York International Airport on January 6, in a specially-hartered El Al plane.
