Adhering to a tradition of several years’ standing, members of Israel’s mission here tonight attended the Simchas Torah celebration conducted at his Brooklyn headquarters by the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Earlier today, Moshe Sharett, former Israeli Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, now chairman of the Jewish Agency, attended religious services at the Jewish Theological Seminary, where he was honored by being called up to the reading of the Torah.

Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister, with Mr. Sharett, Consul-General Binyamin Eliav and other members of the Israel mission attended a dinner tendered for them at the Succah at the Jewish Theological Seminary.
