Hundreds of Jews active in various Jewish organizations here came last night to the Israeli Consulate to bid farewell to Ambassador Katriel Katz who is this week leaving his post as Israel’s Consul General in New York to proceed to his new post as Israel’s Ambassador to Moscow. They also welcomed Ambassador Micnael Arnon, the new Israel Consul General in New York.

Ambassador Avraham Harman. Israel’s envoy to Washington, and Mrs. Harman, tendered a reception to Mr. and Mrs. Katz and to Mr. and Mrs. Arnon at the Consulate here. Ambaseador Katz, who became very popular during his years of service in New York, is sailing with his family this weekend to Israel prior to assuming his new post in Moscow. He had previously been Israel’s charge d’affaires in Hungary and later Israel’s Ambaseador in Poland. Mr. Arnon had previously served in the Israel Embassy in Washington and was later Israel’s Ambassador in Chana.
