Download PDF for this date

Faye Schenk of New York and Philip Granovsky of Toronto, co-chairmen of the Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal, arrived here yesterday for a series of meetings related to KH activities in the next few months that will launch its 1978 campaign. They had meetings today with Premier Menachem Begin and Finance Minister Simcha Ehrlich.

Mrs. Schenk, president of the American Zionist Federation, and Granovsky, president of the United Israel Appeal of Canada, were named co-chairmen of the KH-UIA in June, after the death of the previous chairman, Ezra Shapiro. They agreed to visit Israel on a regular basis in the course of discharging their duties.

Meanwhile, the Keren Hayesod’s first World Young Leadership Mission to Israel, which drew 250 young leaders from 22 countries, ended its 10-day program over the weekend. Peter Levy, of Britain, spokesman for the mission, said a second world-wide event for the KH young leadership was planned for 1979. At the closing ceremonies President Ephraim Katzir urged the participants to express their involvement in Jewish affairs, fund-raising and other areas of concern.
