Canadian Zionst Organization Announces Tourism Plans for Israel

A number of special projects designed to stimulate a substantial increase in tourism to Israel by Canadian Jews within the next three years were announced today by the Zionist Organization of Canada.

The projects will be implemented by the National Tourism Committee of the ZOG in cooperation with various Israel Government agencies. Plans for the projects were reported by Mrs. Nina Cohen, Tourism Committee chairman, at a meeting of the ZOG national executive here.

The 55 national executive members also were told that eight of an expected 50 young Canadian Jews had already been accepted as volunteers to serve for a minimum of one year as members of Sherut La-Am, the program which seeks to enroll 200 United States and Canadian Jewish young people to live and work in Israel as equivalents of the United States Peace Corps volunteers.
