President and Mrs. Itzhak Ben Zvi arrived here tonight for a three-day official visit to Holland. Netherlands Premier Willem Drees, Israel Ambassador Hanan Cidor and Chief Rabbi Aron Shuster greeted Mr. Ben Zvi at the airport this evening.

On Tuesday, Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard will be hosts to the Israeli Chief Executive and his wife at a kosher luncheon at the royal palace. Tomorrow evening, the President will be host at a dinner given in honor of the royal couple. During his visit Mr. Ben Zvi will attend services for Dutch Jews murdered by the Nazis will meet Dutch resistance leaders who helped save Jews and will visit a number of points of interest, including the grave of Baruch des Spinoza.

(In Belgium, where he will go Thursday, the Israeli President will also be a luncheon guest of royalty and will return the honor by playing host to King Baudouin and Queen Mother Elizabeth. He will also visit the International Fair at Brussels.)
