NEW YORK (Oct. 27)
Chief Justice of the United States, Earl Warren, and Israel Foreign Minister, Mrs. Golda Meir, will head the list of American and Israeli leaders who will address the United Jewish Appeal’s 27th Annual National Conference to be held here in December, it was announced today by Joseph Meyerhoff, general chairman of the UJA.
Featuring the Conference will be special programs honoring the 50th anniversary of the Joint Distribution Committee. A record number of representatives from communities throughout the nation are expected to attend the three-day sessions which will open on December 10. They will bring to a close the UJA’s 1964 campaign, set the objectives and national campaign goal for 1965 and elect officers for the coming year.
From preliminary indications of refugee, relief and resettlement aid requirements during the next year, the 1965 UJA goal predictably will exceed the $105,000,000 total sought in 1964 to assist 751,000 Jews in need the world over. In setting the new goal, the delegates will have two guide lines: 1. The report of the 10th UJA Overseas Study Mission, which spent most of October in a first-hand survey of UJA-supported aid programs in Israel, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, and 2. The budgetary presentations of the UJA’s beneficiary agencies.
