ROCHESTER, N.Y.—Vandals ripped the one-story. 56-year-old
frame building of Congregation Anshe Polen, which once had
an enrollment of 100 but had dwindled to 25, and virtually
wrecked it.
MILWAUKEE, Wis. The 1959 Welfare Fund campaign
nearing the $1,200,000 mark is likely to be the best in a decade
... In order to check improper fund-raising by "meshulochim," a
committee has been set up by the Welfare Fund to make a study
of itinerant solicitors to determine the extent of individual
approaches, the amounts contributed and the identity of bene-
ficiary institutions.
NEW YORK—Commenting on a fund-raising drive announced
several days ago by the National Council of Jewish Women, a
spokesman of the Jewish Agency stated: "According to an existing
agreement with the National Council of Jewish Women, the NCJW
may conduct among its own membership only a project to collect
$350,000 over the next four years for the purpose of establishing
a new building for a Jerusalem secondary school associated with
the John Dewey School of Education."


JERUSALEM—President Itzhak Ben-Zvi returned from a
week's visit in Burma, was welcomed at Lydda Airport by Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion, Cabinet members, Knesset Speaker
Nahum Nir, Chief of Staff Haim Laskov and the entire diplomatic
corps, and expressed satisfaction over the great friendship of
Burma's leaders and the entire Burmese nation toward Israel ...
An Israel delegation in Paris completed preliminary negotiations
with 40 representatives of 12 Eureopean nations on multilateral
trade agreements . . . Levi Eshkol, Finance Minister, signed four
agreements in connection with the Eilat-Haifa oil pipeline project,
headed by the Rothschild group, to convert the present eight-inch
line to 16 inches for an all-16 inch line from Eilat to the Haifa
refineries . . . The Israel Ministry of Transport projected plans
for the acquisition of pure jet planes by El Al Israel Airlines
in 1962 at an expected cost of $50,000,000, 80 per cent of the
sum to be obtained as a U.S. Export-Import Bank Loan . . . A
20 per cent increase in foreign currency receipts for the first
five months of the fiscal year, attributed to a jump in exports,
was reported by the Israel Finance Ministry.
TEL AVIV—An estimated 25,000 high school pupils were
again out of their classes when 1,300 teachers went on a one-day
strike against the refusal of the Ministry of Education to agree
to wage demands.

which face Jewish immigrants
of recent years to Israel, and
Jews in other areas of Europe
and the Moslem countries who
depend upon Allied Jewish
Campaign funds and United
Jewish Appeal agencies for vital
aid programs.

The group, the largest UJA
Study Mission ever to make the
trip, will assemble in Vienna
Saturday, for a two and a half
day conference with leaders of
the Joint Distribution Commit-
tee and Israel's Jewish Agency.
Following orientation, they
will leave for Israel where they
will visit institutions for the
care of the aged, handicapped
and orphaned, the ma'aborot,
Israel's temporary shelter for
newly arrived immigrants and
farm settlements.
While in 'Israel, Study Mission
members will be received by
President Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, U.S.
Ambassador Ogden Reid, Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion, For-
eign Minister Golda Meir, Fi-
nance Minister Levi Eshkol
and other government leaders.

INTERPRETATION is that creative quality which a per-
former brings to a work of art. It is this quality that marks
the genius of mezzo-soprano JENNIE TOUREL, one of the
most distiguished recitalists in the United States today.

Jennie Tourel will appear with Israeli violinist Shimon
Mishory at the 27th Balfour Concert on Saturday, 8:30
P.M., November 14 at the Ford Auditorium. It is through
your efforts that the important work of our Kfar Silver
Agricultural Institute and Children's Village in Israel can
be continued.
