NEW YORK (Apr. 20)
Seymour Graubard, chairman of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, stressed today the importance of Jewish organizations scheduling a maximum number of their regular meetings in Israel to help the hard hit Israeli economy and to express solidarity with the Israeli people.
He made the statement in announcing that the ADL’s national commission had scheduled for the first time part of its 63rd annual meeting in Jerusalem next November. He said the decision to meet in Jerusalem had been made in response to an appeal for such scheduling made by Premier Yitzhak Rabin at the Jerusalem Solidarity Conference of world Jewish leaders last December.
The first part of the annual meeting will be held Nov. 13-15 in New York City and the meeting then will shift to Jerusalem for Nov. 15-22, with more than 300 commission members expected to attend.
