See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A seminar for parents of children studying in Israel, a mission for academicians, an educational tour for clergymen, a seminar for Anglo-Jewish journalists, and the convocation of a national board meeting of the American Zionist Federation are some of the nearly dozen varied educational conferences launched by the AZF to take place in Israel this year and next. The AZF study programs are being implemented by the Israel Seminars Foundation.

To show its solidarity with Israel, Mrs. Faye Schenk, AZF president, said the AZF will hold its national board meeting in Israel in February, 1976, the first AZF national board meeting there. During the same month, the AZF will hold in Israel an educational conference and briefing for its professional staff. This is the only time other than a national convention, according to Dr. Samuel I, Cohen, AZF executive director, that a national organization is bringing its entire staff to Israel for an educational seminar.
