Download PDF for this date

Seven black American community leaders are in Israel for a seven-week look at irrigation methods, technology and other aspects of Israeli communal life. Sponsored by Histadrut, they are studying the applicability of Israeli methods to their own communities in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Georgia, where they are active in the all-black Southern Cooperative Development Program. A similar group made a three-week study tour last year. This year’s expedition was coordinated by Ze’ev Barash. assistant secretary general of Histadrut.
