Mizrachi Women Honor Jackson

The Mizrachi Women’s Organization of America today conferred its America Israel Friendship Award on Sen Henry M. Jackson (D.Wash.) Mrs Milton S. Jacobson of New York, national president of the religious Zionist organization, made the presentation in a ceremony in the Senator’s office. The award is given to Americans not of the Jewish faith who have made “significant contributions in the furtherance of America Israel friendship.”

Jackson, in accepting the award, lauded the women’s group for its work on issues involving freedom and liberty for all people, which, He said is in keeping with the American ideal. He said that a modicum of freedom for those in the Soviet Union who wish to emigrate is in the interests of all mankind. The award usually is conferred by the organization at its national convention, which takes place this year in Miami Beach starting Aug.19, but Jackson’s schedule would not permit him to be there at that time.
