Sam Rothberg, general chairman, and Michael Arnon, president of the Israel Bond Organization, left for Israel this week to confer with Premier Menachem Begin, Finance Minister Simcha Ehrlich and other members of the new government. During their brief stay in Israel, Rothberg and Arnon will discuss the campaign program for the sale of Israel Bonds during the second half of 1977.
They will also take up plans for a Leadership Conference in Israel in August where community and national officers of the Israel Bond Organization from the United States and Canada will meet with top Israel government leaders on the country’s immediate and long-term economic needs. Decisions of the Leadership Conference in Jerusalem will be presented to the International Fall Leadership Conference which will be held in Atlanta during the weekend of Sept. 9 to launch the Fall Israel Bond drive.
