NEW YORK (Oct. 16)
Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, vice president of the Israel Bond Organization, left for Israel today to discuss bond-selling activities in the United States and Canada with Israeli officials. Dr. Schwartz said that the record-breaking $13.9 million in Israel Bond sales during the High Holiday period warranted a certain amount of optimism in regard to expectations for the balance of the year. The Bond Organization opened its 10-week fall campaign with sales efforts in more than 600 synagogues on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. During his stay in Israel, Dr. Schwartz will review the country’s economic situation with Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, Finance Minister Zeev Sharef and former Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir who is now a minister-without portfolio.
