JNF Official Says Organization Will Send First Study Mission to Israel

Dr. Milton Aron, the executive vice president of the Jewish National Fund of America, announced today that the land reclamation agency would send its first study mission to Israel. It will be composed of JNF leaders from all parts of the United States. Dr. Aron just returned from Israel where he inspected reclamation projects recently begun in outlying areas. One of them, he said, was a major development program for the entire region from Dan at the northeastern tip of Israel to the eastern shores of the Sea of Galilee.

During his stay in Israel Dr. Aron conferred with representatives of the Jewish Agency and consulted with top officials of the Keren Kayemeth (JNF) in Jerusalem. He reported to them that the JNF national assembly held in New York last October stimulated renewed American Jewish support for the agency’s land development and afforestation projects. Dr. Aron said he was planning to visit JNF regions through out the U.S. to deliver personally reports of new developments in Israel. He said he would report on his recent mission at tomorrow’s meeting of the JNF board of directors here.
