Download PDF for this date

The 32nd annual Israel Histadrut Campaign, seeking $5,000,000 this year, was launched here today at a meeting of the board of directors of the National Committee for Labor Israel. Funds raised in this campaign are devoted to medical, educational and social service institutions operated in Israel by the Histadrut, its general federation of labor.

Isaac Hamlin, chairman of the executive of the committee, reported on plans prepared by the Histadrut for coping with the anticipated mass migration of Moroccan Jews to Israel. Dr. Dov Beigun, national secretary, reported on the organization’s activities for the past year, while Abraham Dickenstein, president of Ampal-American Trading Corporation, analyzed the impact of the recent discovery of oil–by a firm partly financed by Ampal–on Israel’s economy.
