The B’nai B’rith announced today that it had sold a record $13,728,270 in Israel Bonds during 1967, a 70.3 percent increase over the previous year. Sales were $5,667,995 ahead of the 1966 figures, the largest one-year gain since the B’nai B’rith began promoting Israel Bond purchases in 1951.

According to Milton Seidenman, chairman of the B’nai B’rith Israel Bond Committee, cumulative sales for the 16 year period were nearly $98 million or almost ten percent of the total Israel Bond purchases in North America.
