The greetings of Philadelphia’s Mayor Joseph S. Clark were conveyed to Yitzchak Kariv, Mayor of Jerusalem, today by a delegation of 44 civic and business leaders representing Philadelphia’s Allied Jewish Appeal.

The delegation which presented a letter of greetings and an etching of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall to Mayor Kariv on behalf of Mayor Clark, arrived here after a three-day visit to Tel Aviv and various agricultural settlements. Later, the members of Philadelphia’s caravan met with Israel President Itzhak Ben Zvi, who received a five-man delegation from San Francisco earlier in the week.
