More Than 400 Persons Going on Aliya; Largest Single Contingent in U.S. Aliya History

More than 400 persons who plan to settle in Israel will be leaving next Monday from New York. This contingent, it was announced today by the Israel Aliya Center which is sponsored by the World Zionist Organization, is the largest in American aliya history ever to go at one time. They are part of more than 1500 olim who are leaving during the month of August. Among those who are making their aliya is a group of 21 families who will start a non-agricultural cooperative known as Garin-Hamagshimim.
