U.J.A. Sends Young Leadership Mission to Israel; Composed of 60 Members

The first United Jewish Appeal mission to visit Israel since the crisis in that country will leave the United States on July 3, when the seventh annual mission of the UJA young leadership cabinet departs for a 26-day survey tour, it was announced here today.

A group of 60 participants, young American-Jewish community representatives from a score of cities, will make a study of Jewish immigration absorption needs in Israel and refugee aid programs in France, Italy, and Spain which are aided by UJA funds. The mission is by invitation to young men and women in the 25-to-40 age bracket who have demonstrated “leadership potential” in their home communities. Each mission member is paying his own way.
