Sees Education As Most Important Task Facing American Zionism

Download PDF for this date

The most important task facing the American Zionist movement today is education. Mrs. Rose Halprin, member of the Jewish Agency executive, said here before her departure for the United States.

She pointed out that emigration from the United States to Israel depended on education. She stressed the importance of developing new, young Jewish leadership representative not only of the major metropolitan Jewish concentrations but of the entire country.

Commenting on the recently concluded Jewish Agency executive sessions here, Mrs. Halprin said that “we all spoke the same language and no dividing line developed between the Israeli and American members of the executive.”
