Shloshim Ceremony for Pincus

President Ephraim Katzir and Knesset Speaker Yisrael Yeshayahou were among numerous people who participated this afternoon in a ceremony marking 30 days of the death of Louis A. Pincus. The ceremony took place at Mount Herzl.

Jacob Tzur the executive chairman of Keren Kayemeth mourned the late chairman of the Jewish Agency and the World Zionist Executive. He said Pincus strived to imbue Zionism with a modern approach. Pincus fell in the battle which achieved wonderful results but has not yet come to its end. The whole Zionist family lamented his death, Tzur said.

Among the participants at the ceremony were: Yigal Allon, Pinhas Sapir, Natan Peled, Zeev Sharef, Michael Hazani and Shlomo Hillel–all of them members of the Cabinet. Paul Zuckerman and Edward Glasberg, leaders of the United Jewish Appeal, were also present.

The two latest additions to the fleet of Israel’s Zim Lines were built at shipyards near Galacz in Rumania–the first vessels to be built for Israel in a Communist country, it was announced in Tel Aviv. The 4200-ton containership Nareis was delivered last week. Her sistership, Iris, is already in service. Both vessels are highly automated. Each carries a crew of 28 officers and seamen.
