Mizrachi Women’s Convention Votes $250,000 for Project in Israel

The Mizrachi Women’s Organization of America approved a plan at the annual convention here for a $250,000 project to develop Mount Gilboa in Israel.

Through the Jewish National Fund, the women’s religious-Zionist organization will build a road to the first pioneering settlement on the mountain, plant 75,000 trees and construct an outdoor recreational center and park, the first of its kind in Israel, for use by settlers of Gilboa. The delegates also elected Mrs. Eli Resnikoff of Brooklyn, N. Y., to a second term as president.
