More than $4,000,000 in Israel bonds were sola in communities throughout the nation which conducted special Israel bond drives in synagogues during the High Holy days, it was announced today by Henry Montor, vice-president of the State of Israel bond organization.

Mr. Montor stated that one of the outstanding selling jobs in the nation was accomplished by Milwaukee, where almost $350,000 in bonds were sold in synagogues which joined in the enterprise. More record-breaking returns were achieved in Washington, D.C., where $306,000 worth of bonds were sold. Although the complete returns from New York City are not available, Mr. Montor estimated that more than $1,000,000 in subscriptions had been recorded to date in New York. The State of New Jersey set a high water mark in bond sales during the special High Holy Day drive, he reported.
