Dulzin Back from South Africa, Rhodesia Says He is Very Encouraged by Progress of Campaign Goals

Jewish Agency Treasurer Leon Dulzin, who returned this week from a visit to South Africa and Rhodesia, told JTA today he was “very encouraged” by the progress of the campaigns in those countries. Dulzin appeared at major rallies and meetings throughout both countries. On Independence Day he spoke at large meetings at Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

The goal set by South African fund-raising leaders for the two-year 1975-1976 campaign is $100 million. It represents 40 percent more than the 1973-1974 two-year campaign which included the Yom Kippur War emergency campaign. Dulzin told JTA: “I am very optimistic that the goal will be reached.”
