Jack D. Weiler, chairman, and Samuel L. Haber, executive vice-chairman of the Joint Distribution Committee spent four days in Santiago, Chile, their last stop on their inspection tour of JDC facilities in Latin America. Accompanied by Alfredo Berlfein, head of the JDC’s Buenos Aires office, the American Jewish leaders visited schools, Jewish community centers, homes for the aged and attended Israel Independence Day celebrations in the Jewish Stadium where a Chilean military band played Israel’s national anthem and Jewish youths paraded. The visitors called on Israeli Ambassador Moshe Tove and the U.S. Ambassador. They also met with Chilean Jewish leaders.
