Engel to Head American Jewish Committee Drive for $4,700,000

The American Jewish Committee announced today that it would seek $4,700,000 for its programs for 1965, and that Irving M. Engel, past president of the AJC, has been named general chairman of the fund-raising campaign.

Mr. Engel said funds from the 1965 Appeal for Human Relations would support AJC programs for improvement of Christian-Jewish relations, fighting anti-Semitism, exposing discrimination in American industry’s top echelons, counter-action to extremism in the United States, and continued exposure of the Soviet Government’s “official policy” of anti-Jewish bias.
