Miami Beach Dinner Given by Israel Bonds Results in One Million Dollars in Sales

A million dollars in Israel Bonds were sold at a Bonds for Israel dinner here last week. The affair was addressed by Moshe Gilboa, Consul General of Israel in the Southeastern United States, and the Israeli minister for economic affairs in the U.S., Simon Alexandroni. Mr. Gilboa referred to the warm welcome extended to Israeli Premier Gold Meir on her visit to this country and said it was indicative of continuing American friendship for Israel and U.S. understanding of Israel’s security and economic needs.

Mr. Alexandroni said Israel’s security problems did not overshadow the country’s economic expansion or its educational and social development. He said that Israel needs financial support to acquire the necessary deterrents to attack while at the same time continuing its development in other areas.
