United States Ambassador Walworth Barbour joined with Israeli dignitaries today to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of Kfar Batya, a vocational and agricultural training center sponsored by the Mizrachi Women’s Organization of America.

Responding to a speech by Interior Minister Moshe Shapira, hailing American friendship for Israel, Ambassador Barbour said he hoped that Israel will not be disappointed in her belief in the United States. Also present were Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Untermann, Itzhak Artzi, head of Youth Aliya, and Mrs. S. Deborah Ebin, honorary president of the Mizrachi Women. Kfar Batya, founded in 1947, has an enrollment of 500 pupils.
