NEW YORK (Dec. 3)
Chief Justice of the United States, Earl Warren, and Israel’s Foreign Minister, Mrs. Golda Meir, will head the list of distinguished American and Israeli leaders who will address the 27th Annual National Conference of the United Jewish Appeal which opens at the New York Hilton Hotel next Thursday, it was announced today by Joseph Meyerhoff, UJA general chairman.
Highlight of the Conference will be the observance of the 50th anniversary of the Joint Distribution Committee. The four day sessions will bring together 2,000 Jewish leaders representing hundreds of communities from coast-to-coast. They will close the UJA’s 1964 campaign, set the national campaign for 1965, chart plans for achieving that goal, and elect a general chairman and other officers for the coming year.
From preliminary indications of refugee, relief and resettlement aid requirements during the next year, the 1965 UJA goal probably will exceed the $105,000,000 total sought in 1964 to assist three-quarters of a million Jews in need the world over.
