Samuel Bronfman, vice-president of the World Jewish Congress, and chairman of the WJC’s North American executive, sent a telegram today extending best wishes to the Shah of Iran on the 25th anniversary of the latter’s reign. The message stated in part: “We are deeply conscious of your dedication to human welfare as exemplified in many actions for which Jewry throughout the world is most grateful. May you, and your family and your people enjoy peace and prosperity in the years ahead.”
