Over 2,000 unemployed workers have been given relief work in Jewish National Fund forestation programs, a J.N.F. spokesman reported today. He said in response to a request from the Ministry of Labor additional workers will be given temporary employment in various maintenance installations.

Over 5,000,000 trees will be planted in Northern Israel in the first stage of an extensive land reclamation project announced today by the Jewish National Fund. Tree planting will begin soon on mountain slopes near Nazareth, Kfar Tabor, Zippori and other settlements. The reclamation scheme will provide work for seven to eight hundred workers.
