See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The hope that additional American Zionist leaders will settle in Israel was voiced here today by Dr. Israel Goldstein, newly-appointed Jewish Agency treasurer, who is en route to the United States.

Emphasizing that the future role of American Zionists will be chiefly to finance the absorption of 10,000 immigrants monthly into the Jewish state, Dr. Goldstein disclosed that the present proportion of aid extended to Israel by Jewish communities other than those in the United States is now one-third of the total, with the remaining two-thirds emanating from the U.S.
