N. Y. Fraternal Groups to Sell $1,000,000 of Israel Bonds in 100 Days

A special 100-day campaign to raise $1,000,000 for the economic development of the State of Israel was launched by the Fraternal Division of the Israel Bond drive today at a leadership conference held at the Piccadilly Hotel.

The conference, attended by representatives of more than 3,000 fraternal organizations in the New York metropolitan area, formulated action to be taken to help mobilize investment capital for the Jewish State through the sale of Israel bonds. The special drive is expected to bring to $15,000,000 the amount of Israel bonds sold through fraternal organizations since the inception of the campaign ten years ago.
