WZO Committee to Promote Development in the Galilee

Download PDF for this date

The World Zionist Organization Executive today approved a committee headed by its chairman, Leon Dulzin, to supervise the development of the Galilee. The purpose of the committee is to give a new boost to the development of the region, especially the expansion of the lookout posts, the establishment of more posts, and the development of other aspects, such as education and welfare.

As its first task, the committee will study the work already done considering the specific needs of the local population. The Jewish Agency Board of Governors last month approved $5 million for the Galilee plan. The committee’s coordinator is Knesset member Yitzhak Peretz. The WZO Executive also approved the appointment of Dr. Yitzhak Goldberg as coordinator of WZO activities in Latin America.
