Young Leaders from 24 Communities to Go on U.J.A. Study Mission

A group of 84 young American Jewish communal representatives from all parts of the United States will fly to Israel on July 9, as members of the Fourth Annual Young Leadership Mission of the United Jewish Appeal, it was announced here today. They will make an intensive three-and-a-half week survey of immigration absorption needs in Israel, and refugee aid programs in France and Italy.

Membership in the mission, which is led by Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman, UJA executive vice-chairman, is by invitation to men and women in the 25-to-40 age group who have demonstrated leadership potential in their home communities. The mission members come from 24 cities throughout the United States, and each member is paying his own way.
