Histadrut Campaign in U.S. to Be Merged with Emergency Campaign of UJA

Download PDF for this date

The Histadrut campaign in the United States will be merged with the Emergency Campaign of the United Jewish Appeal in 1971. A decision to that effect was passed by the Histadrut Central Committee last night following explanations by the head of the Histadrut campaign, Yehoshua Levi. It was agreed that the Histadrut campaign organization and administration will place itself at the disposal of the UJA Emergency Campaign–just as in 1967 after the Six-Day War. Mr. Levi stressed that it is a merger and not the integration of the Histadrut campaign with the UJA. Moreover, it was agreed that the Histadrut projects benefiting from Histadrut campaigns–like vocational schools, and sick fund clinics–will continue to receive their shares from UJA income. A delegation of the Histadrut campaign leadership from the U.S. will be here next week to discuss with Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir and agency people the details of the temporary merger of the two campaigns.
