One thousand Jewish immigrant families from Soviet Georgia are to be settled in the Galilee under a plan worked out by the Jewish Agency settlement department and presented to the Zionist Congress last night by the department’s director, Dr. Raanan Weitz. According to the plan, some 400 families will settle in a special quarter of the development town of Carmiel, and 600 in two neighboring rural settlements. The immigrants will work mainly in industry.
