Jewish Agency officials called on Israeli citizens today to serve as High Holy Day hosts to the volunteers who came to Israel to help during the May-June crisis and the Six-Day War. An Agency official said that 1,000 families were needed in this city as hosts to volunteers planning to spend the holiday here. There are about 6,000 volunteers still remaining in Israel.
