Download PDF for this date

British Jewry will plant a memorial forest in Israel for those Israelis who died in the Six-Day War, and will also sponsor a “Children’s Victory Forest” in Israel, it was announced here today at the 43rd annual conference of the Jewish National Fund of Britain and Ireland. Both projects will be developed by the JNF.

Rosser Chinn, president of the JNF, reported on the plans for the memorial forest, while the plans for a children’s grove were revealed by Rev. Dr. I. Levy.
