Theodore Kollek, Mayor of Jerusalem, was the guest of honor last night at a dinner of the Federation of Women Zionists of Britain and heard a report that the 16,000 members of the Federation had raised 373,000 pounds ($914,000) last year for programs in Britain and Israel.

Mrs. Carmel Webber, chairman, told the dinner also that stress in Federation activities should be placed on education and encouraging members to send their sons and daughters to Israel at least for periods of service, in addition to Federation fund-raising. The Mayor expressed the thanks of Jerusalem and of Israel to the Federation for its aid to human needs in Israel.
