Sharett Makes United Jewish Campaign in Argentina a Great Success

Results in Argentina’s United Jewish Campaign for 1963 exceeded even the most optimistic estimates following appearances at campaign meetings by Moshe Sharett, chairman of the Jewish Agency executive in Jerusalem, who is currently visiting this country.

Mr. Sharett’s direct participation in meetings in various parts of Argentina resulted in many cases in contributions which were double those of last year while a meeting in Rosario today was attended by a large audience which overflowed the hall. Similar results were expected in the cities of Cordoba and Mendoza while direct contacts with leading Sephardi Jews resulted in larger contributions from that sector of the community.
