Package Tours to Israel Will Be Cheaper Next Winter. Kol Says

Minister of Tourism Moshe Kol said yesterday that American tourists travelling to Israel next winter on ten-day package tours will pay some $120 less than last winter’s minimum package fare.

An agreement to that effect was reached at a meeting between Kol and the director of El Al, Mordechai Ben Ami. According to Kol, the Israeli Hotel Association and Israel travel agents were also partners to the agreement. The readiness to cut winter rates is part of a national effort to increase tourism.

Nicholas Munk, a retired Toronto businessman, is offering a $10,000 prize in an international competition to select the non-Jewish person who has made the most significant contribution to understanding Jews and to “the world-wide struggle against anti-Semitism,” it was announced today.
