U. J.a. Young Leadership Mission Completes Tour in Northern Israel

After completing a tour of northern Israel which included a visit to Haifa port to witness the arrival of a boatload of immigrants, the 140 members of the United Jewish Appeal Young Leadership Mission moved on to the central part of the country to visit the Lachish area. The group, which is headed by Rabbi Herbert Friedman, executive vice-chairman of the UJA, visited immigrant centers in the Tel Aviv area and various new immigrant settlements.

After touring the southern part of the country, the UJA leaders will conclude their visit to Israel by spending two days in Jerusalem where they will meet with President Izhak Ben-Zvi, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and chairman of the Jewish Agency executive Moshe Sharett.
