Ncrac Leaves for On-the-spot Survey of Israel-arab Relations

Leaders of the National Community Relations Advisory Council left for Israel Monday on a three-fold study mission involving post-war Arab-Israeli relations.

The group, headed by NCRAC chairman Jordan C. Band of Cleveland, has been invited by the Israel Government to investigate problems growing out of Israel’s efforts to secure peace with her Arab neighbors, problems of the post-war period in which the Jewish community relations field has special competence and interest, and world-wide problems in this period which are of common concern to both Israeli and American Jewish communities. The mission will return to the United States on Oct. 22 to report on its findings at an NCRAC executive committee meeting.
