Liner Docks at Haifa with 47 Young Immigrants from Argentina, Brazil

Download PDF for this date

The liner Theodor Herzl docked here today with 47 young Jewish immigrants from Argentina and Brazil among its passengers. The youngsters were met by Joseph Klarman, head of the Youth Aliva program, who hailed the newcomers as the forerunners of large scale youth immigration to Israel. He said their numbers would be determined “by our readiness to accept them.”

Mr. Klarman has called for the return to Israel of the children of “Yordim”–Israelis who emigrated and settled permanently abroad. The new arrivals from Latin America will be distributed among various youth movements around the country.
