“The State of Israel looks to the Jews of America to continue and intensify their support of Israel Bonds through the Development Corporation for Israel,” Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, chief executive head of the new Israel Bond organization, told a capacity audience at the dinner here dedicated to the economic defense of Israel.

The audience assembled to welcome Dr. Schwartz to Cleveland applauded the announcement that $436,450 in Israel Development Bonds had been sold for the occasion. “We are slightly below our goal of a half million in bond sales for this dinner, but the momentum and inspiration Dr. Schwartz has given us here this evening will carry us to the goal before the first of July,” Max Freedman, president of the Cleveland Jewish Welfare Federation and chairman of the Israel Bond dinner committee, said.
