Ben-gurion Honored in Brazil

The Brazilian Senate endorsed a resolution today honoring former Premier David Ben-Gurion of Israel on the occasion of his 85th birthday. The resolution was introduced in the Upper House in Brasilia by Sen. Ney Braga, former Governor of Parana State. He recalled the deep impression made by the Israeli cider statesman when he visited Brazil two years ago. Ben-Gurion’s birthday began on October 6 with celebrations throughout Israel and the rest of the world and is scheduled to continue for another two weeks.
