The Jewish Agency is expecting some 18,000 new olim during 1983, a significant increase on last year’s figure of 13,259. The Agency aliya department chairman, Rafael Kotlowitz, gave the prognosis in Jerusalem this week. He said 13,000 of this year’s total would come from the West, compared to 8,800 of last year’s figure.
