NEW YORK (Jun. 27)
Lauding American Jews for “demonstrating even more than their usual generosity in coming to the aid of fellow Jews in embattled Israel.” Dr. Emanuel Neumann, member of the Jewish Agency executive and leader of the American Zionist movement, appealed last night to young Americans to contribute their knowledge and their trained skills to Israel.
“To match the heroism of the Israelis,” he said, “let 100,000 young Americans throw in their lot with them during the next three or four years. By doing so they will also serve America at that vital point on the frontier of freedom.” Dr. Neumann spoke at a mass rally of the Zionist Organization of America held at Hotel Commodore here. Other speakers included Gideon Hausner and Dr. Elimelech Rimalt – both members of the Israel Parliament and the Israeli delegation to the United Nations – and Jacques Torczyner, president of the Zionist Organizations of America.
