Deeply moved by close encounters with Israelis in all walks of life, 318 participants in the United Jewish Appeal’s second annual President’s Mission concluded their 3 1/2 day visit to Israel earlier this month by pledging a total of nearly $6.7 million to the regular 1980 campaign, and an additional $1.25 million for Project Renewal. The regular campaign total represents a 43 percent increase in pledges by the same contributors last year, according to the Mission chairman, Joel Breslau of Washington, D.C.
