4 Top WZO Posts Will Be Given out in New York on May 25

Download PDF for this date

The four main administrative posts in the World Zionist Organization will be given out in a ceremony in New York City May 25, it was reported here by Leon Dulzin, WZO Executive chairman.

The posts, which include the treasury, immigration and absorption, settlement and youth aliya, were entrusted to the 10-member committee a month ago to be handed out to Executive members. The main rivalry is between Labor’s Akiva Levinsky and Herut’s Yoram Aridor for the important treasury portfolio. The 10-member group includes Dulzin, Allan Pollak, Charlotte Jacobson, Eliezer Havin and Moshe Kroner.

Dulzin said the meeting would take place in New York because most of the group’s members live in the United States and because he and Kroner will be in New York at that time to deal with other matters pertaining to the WZO. Dulzin will, in addition, hold meetings with American Jewish leaders.

(In New York, Charlotte Jacobson, chairman of the WZO-American Section, said a reception for Dulzin and his wife will be given May 25 at the headquarters of the WZO-American Section. Mrs. Jacobson also said that a press luncheon will be held for Dulzin for what she describe would be “a wide-ranging discussion of the many problems facing Israel.” Immediately after the luncheon on May 26 Dulzin will return to Israel, she said.)
