Dayan Cancels Address to Mizrachi Convention

Download PDF for this date

Defense Minister Moshe Dayan today cancelled his scheduled address at the opening of the 62nd annual convention of the American Mizrachi Organization in Jerusalem next week. The announcement gave no reason for the cancellation. Gen. Dayan was sharply attacked yesterday by Rabbi Issachar Dov Bergman, of New York, convention chairman, for allegedly trying to intervene in religious matters. Gen. Dayan addressed the opening of the last Mizrachi convention held in Jerusalem two years ago.
