10,000 British Jews Now in Israel, Further Immigration Seen in Prospect


There are now 10,000 Jews from Britain living in Israel, two-thirds of whom immigrated after the establishment of the state, S. Temkin, director of the British Zionist Federation office in Israel, reported today.

He said that, in 1962, 820 Jews from Britain settled in Israel and that the prospect was for more immigration from Britain in the near future.
