Jewish Agency Decides to Aid Seventh Day Adventists from U.S.

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Agency settlement department decided today to provide aid to a group of Seventh Day Adventist families who came to Israel from Oregon two years ago. They came in the conviction that the Messiah will come to Israel and they wanted to be present at his arrival. They settled in a collective village in the upper Galilee and recently ran into economic problems.
