Founders Get State Ceremonies

Download PDF for this date

State memorial services will be held from now on at the gravesides of Theodor Herzl, Chaim Weizmanh, and Zeev Jabotinsky — as well as David Ben Gurion, the Cabinet decided Sunday. The decision came at the suggestion of Premier Menachem Begin. The ceremonies for Herzl and Jabotinsky will be held on Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem; and for Weizmann at his grave in Rehovot. The Ben Gurion ceremony is held at Sde Boker in the Negev.

There will be no Bulletin dated May 28 due to Memorial Day, a postal holiday.
