Download PDF for this date

The 11th annual United Jewish Appeal Study Mission, comprised of more than 200 Jewish leaders from various communities in the United States, arrived here last night for a 12-day tour of Israel and a survey of the activities of UJA-supported institutions. It is the largest study mission ever brought here under the aegis of the UJA. Leading the group is Max M. Fisher, of Detroit, UJA general chairman.

The mission visited the Israel National Museum today, being honored with a luncheon by Teddy Kollek, board chairman of the museum. The Americans are scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and Jewish Agency chairman Aryen Pincus, and will tour many settlements and various development areas. Wednesday, they will participate in the groundbreaking ceremonies for the $1,000,000 Denmark school here, a comprehensive high school honoring the Danish people for their rescue of Danish Jewry during the war. The school is a project of the UJA-Israel Education Fund.
