Many small Bequests
help to build Israel
If the tradition of including the Jewish
National Fund in the Will of every Jew
were invariably followed, resources would
be accumulated to ensure the future of the
young Jewish State on a sound basis of land
development, social welfare, and justice.
A bequest to the Jewish National Fund
should be as traditional as having a Blue
Box in one's house.
You may desire that your bequest shall
be dedicated to afforestation, to a village,
to perpetual yahrzeit or kaddish, or to some
form of permanent memorial in the names
of persons dear to you.

National Fund, 18414 Wyoming, UN

you in working out plans to meet your
