Holocaust Survivor Groups Plan Intensive Drive for Israel Bonds

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The American Federation of Jewish Fighters, Camp Inmates and Nazi Victims, which represents a number of Holocaust survivors organizations, has announced that it will undertake an intensive campaign in the United States and Canada for the sale of Israel Bonds beginning this month and culminating at a national “New Life” Israel Bond dinner to be held in November. The announcement was made by Solomon Zynstein, President of the Federation. The leaders of the campaign are Eli Zborowsky, honorary president of the Federation, who will serve as national chairman while Miles Lerman will serve as national coordinator. Lerman is a member of the U.S. President’s Holocaust Memorial Commission. He is also national president of the Ambassador’s Society of Trustees of the Israel Bond Organization.

The campaign will include local dinners of tribute in honor of individuals who have survived the Holocaust and who have attained success or recognition in various fields, including the business world, philanthropy, science, education, communal service and the arts.

Following the local dinners, the honorees will also receive special recognition at the national “New Life” dinner in New York. A special “New Life” Award, with the theme “Preserve and Remember,” will be presented to the honorees for their “extraordinary efforts to help build a new life for the Jewish people through dedication to the cause of Israel Bonds,” Zynstein said.
