Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion began a two-week vacation today with Mrs. Ben-Gurion. During his absence Finance Minister Levi Eskil will be acting Prime Minister and Ben-Gurion will continue to direct defense matters, in his capacity as Defense Minister, during his leave.

He will attend the first national convention of Bible study groups next week. There are about 400 such groups in Israel, most of them made up of women members.
