The Jewish Agency for Israel’s Board of Governors opened its meeting in Jerusalem proclaiming solidarity with the American people. About 240 Jewish representatives from around the world gathered at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, where Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi was assassinated last week. The Board is expected to make decisions about a proposed $660 million plan to facilitate increased immigration from Argentina, France and South Africa over the next nine years.
