NEW YORK (Jun. 24)
Cash contributions to the Israel Histadrut Campaign as of June 1 were more than $1, 000, 000 ahead of the amount received by the same time last year, it was reported last night by Dr. Sol Stein, executive director, at a meeting of the campaign’s administrative committee. The increase included $446, 000 more in the regular campaign and more than $600, 000 from the American Histadrut Development Foundation.
Dr. Stein also reported that during this fiscal year, which began October 1, 1964, the Foundation had received $1, 012, 000 in new commitments, bringing the five-year total up to the $6, 242, 000 mark. Dr. Stein urged the Jewish communities and Histadrut committee to keep up their pace until the total cash goal of $5, 000, 000 is reached by September 30. The administrative committee also tendered a farewell reception to Ben-Zion Ilan, Histadrut emissary who has completed a two-and-a-half year tour of duty in the Western Hemisphere.
