Download PDF for this date

One hundred U.S. and Canadian Jewish leaders left for Israel from New York last night to participate in the 1976 Jerusalem Leadership Conference with Premier Yitzhak Rabin and other government leaders on the country’s economic problems and needs. The week-long conference will plan a program of action to increase the mobilization of economic development funds by the Israel Bond Organization in order to provide a major share of Israel’s current $1 billion development budget.

An international Fall Leadership Conference to be held in Los Angeles Sept. 10-12 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, will mark the official start of the fall drive for the sale of Israel Bonds.
