Jewish Agency Board Meeting Postponed

Max Fisher, chairman of the Jewish Agency Board of Governors. announced today that the meeting of the board originally planned to take place in New York Dec. 1 and 2 is postponed for a later date and will take place in Jerusalem. Fisher explained that the Jerusalem members of the Jewish Agency Executive had been in touch with him and with Pinhas Sapir, chairman of the Executive, who is presently in the United States for purposes of aliya and the United Jewish Appeal campaign.

The Jerusalem members urged that, in the light of the stringent economy measures being adopted by all official Israeli agencies, the Board of Governors’ meeting should be postponed and its locus moved to Israel. However, in order to discuss crucial problems facing the Agency, it was decided to have a meeting of the Executive of the Jewish Agency, in New York at the end of this month.
