Israeli Moslems to Take Charge of Abandoned Arab Religious Property

Israel’s Cabinet decided today, at its first regular meeting since the November 2 elections, to set up four public committees, to be composed of prominent members of the Moslem community in Israel, as custodians in charge of property of Moslem religious foundations and religious trust funds whose trustees left Israel. Until now, the government custodian for abandoned property managed such properties, transferring the income to Moslem charitable institutions.
