Download PDF for this date

The chairman of the Association of British Settlers in Israel said today that his group expected immigration from the British Isles to double next year. Jacob Morris reported that about a third of the Britons who volunteered to serve Israel during the June, 1967 Six-Day War have returned here or have settled here permanently. He said 1,030 British immigrants arrived here last year and a total of 16,000 British Jews have settled in Israel since the State was established in 1948.
