Download PDF for this date

Two national conferences on succeeding days are scheduled to give a “big push” to the 1966 Israel Histadrut Campaign in the United States and Canada, it was announced here today by Joseph Schlossberg, president of the National Committee for Labor Israel. In New York, the annual mid-winter conference of the Israel Histadrut Campaign will take place Sunday, February 13th at the Commodore Hotel, while on Monday, February 14th, a conference devoted to the American Histadrut Development Foundation will be held in Miami Beach at the Fontainebleau Hotel.

The New York conference will seek to bring the cash drive for $5, 000, 000 up to the half-way mark, with delegations from many communities bringing checks to the rollcall which features the conclave. At the Miami conference, efforts will be made to augment the resources of the Histadrut Foundation by $2, 000, 000 through wills and bequests, to assure future income to finance the long-range educational and welfare activities of Histadrut in Israel. The Foundation has more than $7, 000, 000 in accumulated commitments to date.
