A $100,000 community center at Moledet B’nai B’rith in Israel, will be completed and dedicated by December, the B’nai B’rith Committee for Israel reported at its annual meeting today. A similar cultural and social center was approved for construction at Ramat Zvi, a settlement sponsored by B’nai B’rith in memory of the late Henry Monsky. Work will begin in December.
In other actions, the committee voted $150,000 for the B’nai B’rith Martyr’s Forest, a part of the Jewish National Fund reforestation project; a doubling of B’nai B’rith sponsored tours, which brought 500 visitors to Israel in the past year; and a $7,500,000 goal in the sale of Israel bonds for the next six months.
