Only six of the 12 representatives of the World Zionist Organization’s Israel Executive will be going to Washington for the biennial World Jewish Congress general council meeting Oct. 30, the WZO Executive announced this week. The other six WZO representatives will be enlisted from among its American section–in order to save on travel expenses. The announcement was made by the WZO spokesman after the Executive meeting. There has been periodic criticism in the Israeli press of allegedly too free and frequent travel abroad by WZO officials at public expense, and this latest decision is plainly aimed to counter that.
